The Vermicompost project strives to reduce waste by facilitating urban indoor composting with worms. By being an active demonstration site and providing the required knowledge, materials, and skills we hope to help anyone interested in the practice. To begin and continue vermicomposting we are motivated to enable the community towards a sustainable future. The Vermicompost project at the Concordia University Greenhouse works towards reducing the amount of organic matter that is sent away to land fills. This reduces the emissions of CO2 produced by the transportation as well as greatly reduces the amount of garbage that is accumulated. There are vermicompost bins on site, but we also construct and sell bins that can be used by students and members of the community.
As an added bonus, vermicomposts create nutrient rich soil that is great for gardens and indoor plants. Rather than purchasing fertilizer for your garden, you can make use of the worm castings produced by the red wigglers. Your garden will love the rich blend of castings and soil! Our vermicompost bins are made to order and can be picked up on site.
