Options for saving energy and the environment


Reduce waste the natural way

Vermicomposting, or composting with worms, is an excellent way to convert household garbage into nutrient rich fertilizer. Composting with specialty worms known as Red Wigglers is a clean environmentally friendly way to save tonnes of waste from going to landfill.

If you Vermicompost you will reduce the amount of garbage being transported out of the province. The average Canadian produces a tonne of waste each year. An estimated one-half to one-third of household waste is organic matter.

Worms produce beautiful black castings - a nitrogen rich natural fertilizer that is totally organic and one of the best soil additives on the planet. Use worm castings in houseplants and gardens.

Odourless when operating effectively, worms eat decomposting matter, therefore eating away any nauseous odours and leaving a fresh earthy smell.

Cathy's Crawly Composters has recently introduced a new product called The Worm Chalet. Its tray system is perfect for those that do not like to handle the worms or for families that produce more food scraps than the basic Vermicomposter can handle.

The company has researched and tested a number of layered Vermicomposting systems and has found The Worm Chalet to be the best of the lot. The stylish design allows for a smaller footprint while still processing vast amounts of food scraps. The sturdy plastic structure will remain stable and keep its shape for years to come. The floor of each layer has a removable wire mesh that's easy to clean. Recessed slots on each tray means the layers can be maneuvered with ease without having to pry the layers apart. The Worm Chalet is manufactured and assembled in Ontario.

Harvesting the Worm Chalet is clean and easy. When the worms have finished converting food scraps and bedding from one tray, add another tray on top and the worms will make their way up to the new food source. The lower tray will now consist of converted castings (worm poo) ready to be used in your plants and gardens.
