Guatemala City, Guatemala: A Tweeting Alliance

Article by: Larraine Roulston

When Canadian vermicomposting specialist Cathy Nesbitt of Cathy’s Crawly Composters began Tweeting to share compost information, she didn’t expect her networking to take her to Central America.

Maria Rodriguez is executive director of a large worm farm (www.byoearth.com) that sells fertilizer to nonprofit organizations for subsistence farmers. As she and Nesbitt became Internet friends, both were keen to promote an alliance. Rodriguez wished to learn more about Nesbitt’s social media, packaging and marketing techniques.

To Nesbitt’s astonishment, she received an invitation to help set up vermicomposting projects in Guatemala. “It was an opportunity, I couldn’t refuse,” says Nesbitt. “Together we worked with two women’s groups living around the dump in Guatemala City where we conducted sessions to describe vermicomposting from set-up to harvesting the castings.” One group set up in plastic vermicomposting bins on a rooftop. “We were able to share our passion and experience,” adds Nesbitt. “As well as learning a bit of Spanish, I returned home enriched with incredible knowledge about this wonderfully friendly and colorful culture’s relationship with composting.”
