Partnering with farmers for sustainability

18271897 - beautiful colorful flowers in gardenYou may not think of a small vegetable garden or the flower beds around your house as a great way to save the Earth, but they are. Even now, you may be warmly anticipating getting out in the sun and fresh air with new plants growing and the rich smell of the soil filling the days ahead.

Whether you are a giant producer on hundreds of acres, a manager maintaining a lush golf course or a simple home gardener, we can all appreciate the gifts our plants and the soil have to give.

You can protect that soil, and strengthen it, while simultaneously helping the planet through the powerful process of vermicomposting.

Vermicomposting is a natural process that harnesses the power of the earthworm and creates chemical-free, nutrient rich soil. Our partnership with Coyne Farm in New York state, a Dairy of Distinction and a facility that has been in operation for over 100 years, has allowed us to promote and facilitate vermicomposting on a large scale to reduce harmful waste and provide more growers with safe, organic soil.

Here are a few reasons why any farmer or gardener will want to try soil enriched with vermicomposting in their fields and beds this season:

  1. Vermicomposting gives farmers on both sides of production an opportunity to use up a waste material – manure – and produce an effective, high quality soil. Manure waste is a problem for many farmers, and while farmers can make use of some of this waste, there is just too much waste created for the majority of farmers to viably use. At Worm Power we use vermicomposting as a solution that both reduces the unwanted, harmful waste and creates a natural, healthy product to enrich soil.
  2. The product is of high quality. Vermicomposting produces soil that is rich in nutrients. This soil has been shown to reduce disease and increase yield in crops. Studies at Cornell University show deeper, heavier root mass in plants when tested both in the lab and field. Not only is the soil better for the environment, but vermicomposting makes soil that is better for the plants.
  3. Vermicomposting is natural. That’s really the bottom line, because nature has provided a safe, effective way to create rich, productive soil from waste by giving farmers the earthworm.
