Environmental conservation is at the forefront of concerns for Golf Bastide de la Salette. Beyond legal obligations, it is our responsibility to implement solutions for the sorting of biowaste. We actively participate and are committed to soil protection.

Everyone is involved in the source separation of biowaste, but even more so when it comes to food biowaste from a restaurant situated on 70 hectares of greenery and nourishing soil. The process has been established in collaboration with the entire staff. At Bastide de la Salette, we handle the remnants of meals, meal preparation, or unused expired products to valorize them into organic matter. A loop is formed between the purchase and preparation of a dish in the kitchen, the service and tasting at the restaurant, and the valorization of generated waste.

Assisted by a specialized company, we have implemented a selective sorting system to separate organic waste from other recyclable materials. Additionally, we employ biodegradable elements to minimize our impact on the environment. Furthermore, we raise awareness among our staff and clients about the importance of responsible waste management.

Together, we can contribute to preserving our planet for future generations and produce high-quality compost. The company “Les Alchimistes” collects our biowaste bins once a week to transport them to a nearby site and transform them into compost.

This compost derived from biodegradable waste will be utilized by local farmers, and a small percentage will also enrich the soils of the golf course. Compost enhances soil fertility, regenerates the land, makes it more vibrant, retains water, and contributes to the development of plants.

It’s thanks to this virtuous circle that our head chef, Stephan Piacenti, and his entire team work with Simon Valmy’s team on the ground, the course superintendent.
