Onsite Worm Composting

  • Posted by Mitchell Flexo on May 5, 2010 in Food
  • Vermicomposting, or worm composting, is a very good idea for restaurants who want to reduce their waste and turn it into a valuable resource. It's especially useful because, unlike traditional composting methods, the process is completely odorless and therefore very practical in a restaurant setting.

    In Boise, Idaho, eco-restaurateur Dave Krick feeds 200,000 extra diners living in his restaurant's basement. The residents are red wiggler worms working around the clock to turn kitchen waste into nutrient-rich compost.

    Hopefully more restauranteurs take note of Dave Kricks's vermiculture techniques and turn trash into a gardener's treasure.
