Vermiculture

Curby’s is a vermi-composter. This means that we use worms to convert food scraps into a valuable organic fertilizer.

The food scraps that we pick up from our customers are processed into a food stock that our worms can easily digest. The food stock is then added to the top layer of the bins where the worms are the most active. The environment within the bins allows the worms to eat, breed and shed castings. The vermicompost is harvested from the bottom of the bins.

Our bins are designed to create the best possible conditions for the worms. Happy worms are productive worms. The conditions within the bins are monitored to maintain the ideal temperatures, moisture levels, feeding rates, worm population densities, and worm reproductive rates.
