Vermicomposting is the process of using worms to compost organic materials such as yard waste and food scraps, into the form of organic fertilizer that NATURE has chosen for millions of years.
Vermicomposting will reduce your waste along with re-enrich your soils.

Advantages of Vermicomposting

  • Composting worms will consume around ½ of their body weight per day. This means you can have worms that will actually eat all the organic waste your household produces, while only using up a couple square feet of space.
  • Worms will naturally reproduce over time to fit whatever size the conditions of their "home" allows. This allows you to control their population by the size of their "home".
  • With worm composting you will lessen your burden on overfilled landfills by recycling your organic waste instead of throwing it in the trash can.
  • The end product from worm compost, commonly known as "castings" or simply worm poop, is quickly becoming known as one of the best options for adding fertility to your soil in a safe organic way.

Advantages of Earthworm Castings

  • Earthworm Castings re-introduce beneficial bacteria and microbes into your soil that are crucial for having healthy living soil. This will help fight disease and promote excellent growing conditions.
  • Nutrients are made available to the plant in a form that is more easily absorbed by the plant than other types of fertilizer. This is due to the special digestion system of the worm that grinds the nutrients down for easy absorption by the plants.
  • Nutrients from castings will not be lost by water "run off" unlike synthetic fertilizers. This is because the castings physically become a part of the soil and stay in place for the plants to feed from.
  • Improves water retention in soils.
  • Earthworm Castings are non-toxic at any concentration. No need to worry about over feeding and killing plants.
