Worms Down Under A Vermicomposting Revolution 6

A great blog post by Who Gives a Crap with some simple tips on how we can fight climate change and keep our planet beautiful.

“In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” – David Suzuki said it best.  We don’t need a few people doing it all, we need everyone doing a little bit.  Small changes make big impacts. One small thing you can do is start a (vermi)compost which uses worms to compost your organic waste! Vermicomposting is one of the best forms of composting, here’s why:

  • It uses an aerobic process which does not produce methane. Methane is approximately 26 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas.
  • It can take as little as half the time of conventional composting.
  • Vermicast also contains higher nutrient and microbial concentrations than conventional compost.
  • Vermicast improves soil health and fertility, improves water retention and reduces the need for fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Vermicast helps plants resist attacks by pathogens, insects and parasitic nematodes.

We have various domestic and commercial worm farms available – check them out here.
