Greg(theCrazyFishGuy)'s Aquarium Research ... because life underwater is good!: Vermicomposting.
Today I’m going to talk about my adventures in vermicomposting, that is keeping red wiggler worms in a small plastic box, allowing them to much on compost and poop out a wonderfully rich soil additive. While this post might seem a little off-topic, but I assure you it does indeed relate to fishkeeping in that larger fish love noshing on live food, including earthworms. So, it’s a pretty easy and awesome thing to do, taking your food waste and turning it into food for your plants and tasty food for your fish too! Those of you who’d like to try breeding fish will find live/meaty foods will help bring your prospective parents into breeding condition.

About the author: Feeling like the Web could use a little more well-documented and researched information, I had a desire to share some of my adventures in fish keeping and breeding with my fellow aquarists. Thanks to some nudging from friends, this WordPress blog was born. Let me start by saying I have absolutely no formal background in biology, genetics, statistics or research methods and have learnt all that was necessary through books and Internet resources. In school, I studied computer engineering, where the endless slew of classes involved a sampling of pretty much “everything science” except biology. With an almost hyperactive need to learn new things though, my down-time was spent escaping into the underwater world of my aquaria ... and loving every second of it.

About the author: After hitting the glass ceiling at my corporate job, I made a nonnegotiable decision to make something out of myself. Inspired by the ultrasuccessful women I’d met through Mary Kay, I decided to move into a leadership role and become a director—a position that demanded an intensive four-month qualification period. With my fierce will leading the way, I went ahead and booked a hotel and caterer, and sent invitations to my debut party before I even qualified to be a director. Even though 90% of the women who pursue this position fail to meet its prerequisite sales mark, I told myself failure was not an option.

The Academy - Worm Composting Pilot Project In November 2011 Nicole Klement and Terri Rutty met to discuss ways in which the YMCA Academy could be more sustainable. Of concern was the waste management system at the Central YMCA, the school’s new location. Unfortunately green bin pickup is not currently available for schools, businesses and condominiums in the city of Toronto so a search for ways to reduce the school’s garbage output. Once research on vermi-composting began all referrals pointed towards Cathy Nesbitt from Cathy’s Crawly Composters. Cathy is well known in Toronto for her vast knowledge of worms and worm composting. Nicole and Terri contacted her for suggestions and to see whether composting at the Academy was an option.

Speed River Journal - An urban naturalist's progress. - Beginners’ vermiculture ... This weekend I brought home a brand new Worm Chalet.

You do it indoors with red wrigglers.

Healthy Balance 4 You - Worms Anyone? This past Christmas I purchased some red wiggly worms for my husband...oh he likes gardening, so all good! Surprisingly for pets, they are very quiet and are free to feed. The end result will provide us with food for the garden, and trees. I like that it helps us be self-sustaining and contribute to the environment.
It was a great investment and Cathy was very helpful and I must say very entertaining. No lack of passion there!
I always enjoy learning something new...how about you? Enjoy the learnings and pass along to those gardeners you know.

Natural Health Care Blog - The worms have arrived!
Suhujitha and I have been very excited to have a functioning worm chalet in the office. Everyone else, it seems, has been either neutral or disturbed by the idea that we would be composting our office waste using this method. We are apparently a fruit-eating office here and since the City of Toronto doesn't pick up green bins from businesses, our compost waste ends up in the trash. Well, not any more. (Ed. note: some great pics here)
