Worms provide answer to current garbage woes

March 7, 2011

Earth Day is around the corner (April 22). Want to learn more about how worms will help solve our current garbage crisis? Worms are nature’s original recyclers. Red Wiggler worms are going to play an ever-increasing role in waste management and soil production.

Worm composting is a wonderful solution for apartment dwellers and those not being served by a Green Bin Program. As worm composting can be done indoors, composting continues throughout the year. Worms convert food scraps and paper into nature’s finest fertilizer known as castings.

Red Wigglers consume 1/2 their weight daily in organic matter. One pound of worms and their descendants can transform one tonne of organic waste per year.

Cathy’s Crawly Composters is an educational worm composting business. We conduct inspirational workshops and demonstrations. Our goal is to raise awareness about sustainable living. 50,000 students have seen our presentation. School initiatives include Worms Without Borders, Adopt-a-worm bin and sustainable fundraising.
