Organics & Composting

-- Quote of the Day --

I think when you find your passion, and my passion is the environment and protecting it, you really sing along. While I was in the corporate world as a secretary …and needed a lot of variety, but it wasn’t until I discovered being an entrepreneur and having my own business, one that I could be so proud of, that I am able to enjoy life fully. I was sort of attached to the negative energy, and it was a hard struggle. …For applications on the farm there is also the added bonus of manure management worms can reduce the volume of manure piles by 80% and eliminate ground negative bacteria (e-coli, salmonella) …so worm composting of manure actually makes the product safer for handling and processes it more so it makes the nutrients more accessible to the plant. …Cows produce 66 pounds of manure per cow and this can be a big problem where cities are encroaching on the farming areas and there is a lot less tolerance for farm odors – and raw manure is becoming a big issue.”
