Vermicompost and VermaPonics; Worms like trash, Fish like Worms, Plants like Worm Poop. Where Do Humans Fit In? Well Don’t Be Surprised…

As seen produced here at Growing Power, worms and worm castings are a budding farm industry. This is a practical way to turn waste into worms and compostings into plant fertilizer. Waste is free, castings and live worms make a profitable return.

At OTGE we like worms as fish food but also add them directly in aquaponic plant beds. We also take worm castings, create a worm tea and use this as fish feed supplement, algae fertilizer, crawfish feed and duckweed feed; and of course fish love the worms too. Taken one step further, worms inoculated directly into the rock beds bring ‘essence of worm’ directly to the plant roots while helping improve the condition of the beds overall.

Other uses of worms on the farm? Dehydrated and converted to meal they may be stored for months and fed to chickens, pigs and goats. Worm meal is over 70% pure protein.

In fact, if you close your eyes and imagine it dried, powdered, seasoned w garlic, kelp and pepper, you might just salivate at the thought of ‘worm flakes’ sprinkled over organic popcorn, like brewers yeast. Yummm!
