What is vermi-compost?

– Vermi-compost is the end product from composting with worms.

– Vermi-compost contains castings, broken down organic matter, bedding, worms, worm cocoons, and other organisms.- (Nancarrow 98).

Vermi-compost is a intensely  rich & micro bacteria loaded product that earthworms & compost worms excrete when they digest their food .

Vermicomposting utilises composting worms to convert organic wastes into high quality compost. This is one of the way s of composting kitchen scraps into a valued garden media.

Many gardeners use vermicomposting systems for all their garden and kitchen waste, reducing their garbage by up to a third and providing their own organic fertiliser for gardens on verandas and rooftops to grow their own organic produce.

Castings contain:

– A neutral pH of 7 no matter what the diet of the worm.

– (“If you are looking for worms, you are in the right place!”

– Beneficial bacteria, plant growth hormones, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, selenium, organic carbon.

– 5 times the available nitrogen, 7 times the available potash, and 1 1/2 times the available calcium than found in good top soil. (“Earthworms as a natural resource” Chapman, Ingrid.)

– Humic acid: which is a beneficial fungal activator.BookCoverOnBook

– Fulvic acid: which is a beneficial bacteria activator.

– Auxins: which is an organic substance characterised by its ability to promote growth, particularly in roots. It is an active ingredient in

rooting compounds.

– Not a single trace of E.coli, salmonella or other pathogens as they are destroyed due to the competition from the active micro

flora and intestinal secretions. Most of our human pathogens are anaerobic and cannot survive in the aerobic environment  created by worms.
