Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
I've been noticing more and more, a few worm castings sellers putting down people who compost waste to make worm castings.Their weapon of choice is peatmoss,basically fed worm chow on top.Why does one do this?It's a good way to control the market.Can actually get more weight you take out than you put in.Plus there is little work involved.With organics taking off,if we all take the easy route,what have we done? NOTHING! Other than deplete a peat bog.
It is a known fact that a diverse blend of things fed to worms makes more potent castings,than peatmoss,which contains no benefit at all itself.I just got done looking at a castings ad that advertised they were "Green" using peatmoss and corn only! LMAO!
It's virtually impossible to make 100% castings.The only way to almost do it is by having an area beside the bedding worms can crawl on and leave some castings behind.Anyone who tells you they have 100% worm castings,also likely sells bridges for a living! Peatmoss is also used to deceive,by looking "great!"
Best to do your part and teach people how to dispose of garbage with worms.Teaching someone to compost with peatmoss and worms takes 5 minutes.The worst waste of time in the world! Literally!
The old peatmoss trick comes from what gave worms a black eye in the seventee's.Grow worms in peatmoss in buckets,then when you couldn't sell them,they offered to buy them back at some rock bottom price.Then sell them to the next sucker! You can compost anything in a bucket with worms.Don't think it only works with peatmoss.Best to teach people the best way to rid our planet of a little waste.Peatmoss may or may not be here when humans are all gone! No amount of money is worth teaching people to avoid using waste.If you got a book that teaches the peatmoss technique,shred it! Worms even prefer that over peatmoss!
