Hello friends
My chapter as "the worm guy" forced me to grow, it took me new places, and it taught me so much.
My time leading the worm farm has run it's course. Over the next few months the Compost Service will transition to its next chapter. That chapter isn't written yet. If you are curious or interested in participating in the next chapter, please reach out via Facebook message.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Origin

At the end of my lunch break I threw away the seeds and middle bits of my sweet pepper. As I did, I noticed banana peels, orange peels, grape vines that covered anything that actually needed to be in the trash can. I paused for a moment and went on my day.

I had grown up in the country so food scraps would just get thrown into the brush and nature would take care of it. Now I was in a city, in an office most of the day and something about throwing away veggie scraps didn’t feel right. I thought it would be neat to compost, but I didn’t know how to do it in an office, let alone in the city.

Later that week it dawned on me. Some corner of my mind echoed with the idea of an indoor worm box. A few moments of rapid googling exposed me to a whole world of worm farmers. Over the course of several lunch breaks I learned how to keep worms and made a plan on how to take care of office veggie scraps. The biggest obstacle was space. Thankfully, one standard storage tote can easily handle the food scraps of several lunches everyday.

From there, one thing lead to another and I started to compost for more and more households. As I took on composting for more and more people I realized I had more castings (high-quality compost made by worms) than I could ever use. I began to bag and sell the castings so that I could use that money to grow the compost service and offer it to more folks in the community.
