The Positively Green Podcast

Mar 22, 2021

Suzette teaches us all about vermicomposting. Landfilling garbage is becoming less and less popular, especially as we are learning about how individuals can help curb climate change.  (And large corporations are most responsible, but we can also put our minds on small steps that we can take too.)  

Most of us think of paper, plastic, and yard waste as garbage, but food waste is a huge percentage of the total waste stream.  

Did you know that food waste contributes to greenhouse gases?  And that by composting with worms, you can efficiently process food waste and turn it into nutrient-dense food for your garden.

Have you been thinking about using worms for composting?  Maybe a little curious about how to do it?

In this episode you’ll learn about:

  • The value of composting with worms
  • How to get worms and keep them strong
  • How using worms to compost your food waste is a non-violence practice
  • Proper maintenance and upkeep of a worm bin
  • How to get started at low or no cost
  • The secret to breeding worms

Vermicomposting can be a fun way to transform your kitchen waste into nutrient-rich food for your garden and plants.  It’s also really satisfying to know that you can do your part to process food and decrease greenhouse gases in our environment.
