Remember earlier that in one of my LinkedIn posts, I talked about composting! If you guys forgot what composting is, composting is basically using used veggie peels to improve the quality of the soil for plant growth!
Vermicomposting is totally the opposite! It is the product of earthworm 🪱 digestion and aerobic decomposition. The worms decompose the items and the product of that digestion is used to improve the soil. Composting sometimes lacks space in your backyard as it requires so much space. Vermicomposting is a popular alternative to composting which many people use!
There are several benefits to Vermicomposting: it diverts organic items from the landfill and reduces trash collection fees. It also creates resources from waste materials.
Vermicomposting can be a fun activity for children because they can learn about plant and soil growth! Typical earthworms which you find in your garden are not usable for Vermicomposting! These are soil worms that don’t process large amounts of food waste and don’t reproduce too well. The worms which are suitable have to reproduce quickly for the process to work!
Let’s hope that people stick to composting and Vermicomposting so we could make our earth a better place to live!
We won’t have to throw away things to the landfill and we could save a lot on trash bills and CO2 emitted from incineration plants!
