Sustainable Gardening: Learn How To Make Your Own Organic Fertilizer!

Known also as worm compost, vermicast, worm castings, worm humus or worm manure, vermicompost is similar to plain compost, except that it uses worms in addition to microbes and bacteria to turn organic waste into a nutrient-rich fertilizer. Vermicompost, or vermiculture, most often uses two species of worms: Red Wigglers (Eisenia foetida) or Red Earthworms (Lumbricus rubellus) rarely found in soil and are adapted to the special conditions in rotting vegetation, compost and manure piles.

There’s a whole subculture to composting when you enlist worms (usually red worms) to do your dirty work.

Vermicomposting, or composting with worms, turns garbage into a rich, dark earth-smelling soil conditioner, which you can use to help your lawn, your flowers or your vegetable garden.

Worm composting doesn’t just help you, but also the environment. The City of Vancouver in Canada publishes the Urban Agricultural Notes and supplies residents with worm bins and has a hot-line you can call to find out where to buy worms. Spokane, Washington posts information on worm composting to encourage its residents to give it a try. Not to be out done, the state of California has an animated, interactive game that teaches the basics of vermicomposting and its benefits.

With the use of vermiculture you can start producing your own organic fertilizer to grow your plants, flowers and/or vegetables while reusing your organic wastes for a new usable product. Go ahead, go green and give it a try!

Organic Sustainable Gardening with Compost and Mulch


Organic Sustainable Gardening with Compost and Mulch
About a year ago I decided to become a more sustainable gardener. I stopped purchasing store-bought bag soil, fertilizers, rock dust, and compost teas. All while have amazing results! In this episode, I’ll demonstrate how homemade compost can covert horrible dirt into high quality soil loaded with organic matter and earthworms.

I show 3 different mulch options I use in my garden including hay, wood chips, and palm tree shavings.

I conclude with cover crops I use to enrich and improve my soil fertility. All without purchasing any soil and more importantly, not spending any money!
