RECORDED VIDEO - VERMICOMPOSTING

Topic: The Art of Vermicomposting

Originally aired: April 21, 2020

Listen as we talk with AJ Delgadillo about the world of worm farming or vermicomposting. Learn how to transform food scraps and yard waste into worm castings. They are the dark rich end product that builds soil fertility by feeding the soil and the microbial community that sustains your vegetable and flower gardens. AJ will discuss the ins and outs of year round worm farming and the benefits of using worm castings over chemical fertilizer. He will also explain how worm farming builds a local cycle for food waste, gardening, and food sovereignty in this time of food system uncertainty. Vermicomposting, like all composting, is an important sustainable practice that multiplies life and beauty, while reducing landfill waste that decays into toxic byproducts. This resilience strategy is so great because it's simple, does visible (and delicious) good, and is related to a number of other resilience strategies!
