A young man came to buy worms the other day and when asked what had spurred his decision to begin vermicomposting, he said he didn’t like his smelly garbage. This simple, straight forward answer reminded us how times have changed in the worm farming industry. When we began NATURE’S PERFECT PLANT FOOD it was with the expressed purpose of making the best vermicast we could. Our main efforts were concentrated to that end. Ten years ago very few people even knew what worm castings were, now its common knowledge. What started as a quest for healthy effective organic fertilizer has grown into a constructive movement to help our environment. Worm farmers now do it with the health of the planet in mind. What’s surprising to most is the global understanding of vermiculture, many cultures in warmer climates have been harvesting castings for generations and here our First Nations certainly knew the value of the “dancing worms”. http://www.naturesperfectplantfood.com/2012/06/27/how-ferret-got-black-feet/ The rest of North America has some catching up to do. Not only do we produce much more garbage but we’re extremely wasteful and neglectful in our waste disposal practices. Times are changing. Slowly but surly people are realising that we need to take responsibility for this mess we call “western society” and one of the quickest, easiest ways to improve is to simply compost your organic waste, it’s a no brainer. Look at the giant compostable parts of this pie!
