We are in the organic fertilizer (vermicompost) business in Malaysia. We encourage poeple recycle their food waste and at the same time produce vermicompost. We also buy back their vermicompost and their worms.
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.
