RWC worm friend, Cassandra Truax, recently shared a really cool link on the RWC Facebook page and I knew I just had to share it here as well. I’m not sure how long the video and article will stay online (News websites can be bad for quickly removing, or at least moving content) so be sure to check it out while you can.
The video above features a very cool new vermicomposting system that was developed at Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU).
Here are a couple of blurbs from the article (basically just transcript of video):
This machine, developed at SVSU, speeds up the process by grinding up things like wasted food and grass clippings. That material is then sent into a chamber filled with thousands of worms.
SVSU officials think they might be able to mass produce the Worm Factory for about $1,000 per unit. Widespread use could go a long way in reducing the amount of wasted food and paper products sent to landfills
Here is a link to the original article: Recycling project designed to feed worms, not landfills
Thanks for sharing this, Cassandra!
