Vermicomposting continues to gain both attention and participants as consumers seek uncomplicated ways to manage home food waste. At Worm Nerd, we see our role as a partner. Whether you’re raising worms to benefit from the nutrient-rich end-products for chemical-free gardening, or your family is aiming to use composting worms to shrink landfill waste, Worm Nerd provides high-quality products for vermicomposting appreciated and used by mindful gardeners, families, and those who care about the health of our planet.
Composting with worms is a sustainable and easy way to reduce organic waste and produce high-quality compost for improving soil quality and plant health. These voracious eaters consume fruit and vegetable scraps, cardboard, shredded paper, and other organic waste that would otherwise be thrown away. Composting worms reproduce quickly, reduce landfill waste, and expel chemical-free by-products for boosting the production of plants and gardens.
Because composting worms have no teeth it’s common to add a gritty supplement to the food layer, which then helps their gizzard break it down into smaller particles. As what goes in must come out, Worm Nerd’s grit is a nutrient-rich, proprietary blend that not only aids in worm digestion, but helps maintain pH levels and vastly improves the resulting worm waste loved by plants.
Expelled worm waste is rich with nutrients and results in larger, stronger, and healthier plants. Because of the nutrients and live micro-organisms, it’s also a natural fungicide and pesticide that builds up plants’ immune systems. The solid waste (”worm castings”) is used by itself or mixed with other organic ingredients as a natural soil additive to increase plant health.
Liquid fertilizer (”worm tea”) is made by collecting beneficial nutrients and microbes from the worms’ waste and urine with water. The process in which the tea is collected creates a highly concentrated elixir ideal for the care and chemical-free maintenance of food gardens, lawns, orchids, houseplants, and other plants. Used to enhance the soil so plant roots can flourish, this tea is the secret sauce that plants love.
