Benefits of vermicomposting

Good for you

Devoting time and energy to your worm bin is quite therapeutic and will help you gain a greater appreciation for nature. It may also nudge you to eat healthier since your pet wormies need to be fed fruit and veggie scraps. Plus, it's honestly fun!

Great for your plants

Worm castings is the end result of the composting process and it contains essential nutrients, humic acid, growth hormones, and microbes that have basically created thriving forests. It's going to make your plants really, really happy.

Amazing for our planet

Food waste in landfill rots releasing methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Not to mention the emissions from garbage trucks. It can all be avoided by the simple act of composting your waste at home.

It's like magic, really

This is what happens to your food scraps after every 2 weeks. In 4 weeks, all that "waste" is transformed by the wormies into beautiful, black gold for your plants.

My partner and I did a worm bin building workshop with The Box of Life and really enjoyed it. Our worm bin is doing great so far and I love that we got to build it ourselves.
