Food Waste Collection and Compost
Worm castings, vermicast, vermicompost, worm poop, worm compost
By any name, our organic hand-crafted soil amendment is produced to the highest standards for notable results in the garden.
Our plant-based, sustainable worm castings are a living soil amendment. Worm castings contain microbes, nutrients and minerals that feed the soil. Direct application or a worm tea spray improves overall plant health by improving soil structure and water retention, encouraging vigorous root growth, and adding beneficial microorganisms to the soil.
how it's made
- Worms are housed in an indoor, climate-controlled building.
- Their sustainable diet includes local plant-based food waste, farm crop waste, and local yard debris.
- All material is pre-composted until it meets rigorous PFRP standards (Process to Further Reduce Pathogens), ensuring weed seeds and pathogens are inactivated.
Vermicast is bagged to order to ensure best quality and moisture/microbial content (so it's chock full o' bugs - the good kind!). Available in 3 qt or 10 qt compostable bags (resealable).
