What Is Vermicomposting?

Vermicomposting, sometimes referred to as vermiculture, utilizes composting worms in order to speed up the breakdown of organic matter. Compared to traditional composting, it is simpler, quicker, and more space-efficient. Vermicomposting produces vermicompost as a byproduct, which is generally considered to be a superior fertilizer compared to regular compost.

vermicompost vs. chemical fertilizers

Plants are unable to absorb conventionally-used fertilizers well due to its unbalanced nature. Also, these harsh chemicals kill beneficial microbes that maintain plant health. An excess of chemical fertilizers can even burn delicate plant roots. Chemical fertilizers also damage the soil, leaving plants vulnerable to disease.
On the other hand, worm castings boast a complete nutrient profile. Additionally, vermicompost promotes the growth of good bacteria, which help guard plants from disease, and encourage high-quality growth. Likewise, the addition of vermicompost conditions and aerates the soil, promoting healthy plant roots. Most importantly, vermicompost is safe and organic.

Why vermicompost?

According to the study of Castillo and Otoma (2013), the Philippines alone produces around 35,580 tons of garbage daily. Of the trash, 52% is biodegradable. If everyone vermicomposted their biodegradable waste, we would see a reduction of more than half of the trash in the Philippines. As an additional benefit, this would all turn into nature’s best fertilizer. We make it easy for you to do your part with our simple starter kits. (Click here to go to our Products page)

more about the earthworm

Earthworms are our number one partners in creating vermicompost. However, the earthworms used are unlike the ones found in your garden. Garden earthworms burrow deep into the ground, and will not survive in worm bins. In contrast, African Nightcrawlers, the most commonly used species for vermicomposting in the Philippines, live above ground, in decaying matter. As a result, they can thrive even in small worm bins.
