Hi Norhana. I haven't been to Malaysia, but I did live in Indonesia for a while and learned a little Bahasa Indonesia. I know they're not the same, but coming from a western country, they are very similar (Like Canada and the US would be to us, though don't tell that to a Canadian!) I'm glad to hear that you are promoting vermicomposting in Malaysia. Is it at all popular/common? Or are you having to work really hard to convince people? I hope that after a few farmers adopt the practice it will become more common.

I read that in India, they are putting lots of worms in soil that has been contaminated by industry with heavy metals (mercury, lead...) and after a while (6-9 months I think), they take out the worms and the soil is clean. They have to kill the worms then, though since now the metal is in the worms.
