About Us

Cathy Nesbitt is a Worm Advocate and Founder of Cathy's Crawly Composters. Established in 2002 this environmental business specializes in vermicomposting (indoor composting with worms) and organic diversion. Vermicomposting is a leading edge answer to our organic waste problem.

Cathy's Crawly Composters endeavours to reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill. We recycle organic material by vermicomposting with worms and produce beautiful black castings. Castings are a high grade natural soil enhancer, one of the best fertilizers available anywhere.

In addition to Red Wiggler Worms, we also offer worm workshops, complete vermicomposting systems, educational books and videos.

Through inspirational story telling and an incredible sense of humour, Cathy has raised the level of awareness about environmental conservation. Cathy's thought-provoking style of speaking inspires individuals to take action and do something. Over 75,000 students have seen her presentation! Cathy has spoken on vermiculture at provincial and national conferences. She has also been featured in a variety of media including print, television and radio. Cathy is also the subject of a documentary: Squirm - The Cathy's Crawly Composters Story.

If you have any questions or comments about our Web Site or about any aspect of Vermicomposting or if you would like to book a demonstration/workshop, please contact us at the link below.
