RWC “Worm Friend”, Heather Rinaldi, recently sent me a link for a really cool video featuring some work she is doing with another Dallas area green business owner. Here is what she had to say about it:
Just wanted to let you know that vermicomposting and using vermicompost for local organic growing are being thrown out as “an idea worth sharing” here at the local TEDx forum at Southern Methodist University. My GROW Dallas partner, Andrea Bithell, and I really tried to make an educational video to help people get their hands around the concept of capturing waste, vermicomposting, and growing their own healthy vegetables. We tried hard to make it educational and a call to action, vs. a commercial. Here is the video (and that is an outdoor worm trench on the side of my house, not a garden in the first scene–some people were saying they wanted to see a little bit of what my “operation” looked like)!
This concept is very similar to a “brainstorm” of my own, and I can’t help but feel that there is SO MUCH untapped potential here. Not only is this a really nifty eco-business idea, but these gals are also empowering the community to grow their own eco-friendly, healthy food! It doesn’t get much better than that!
Thanks Heather, for sharing (and inspiring)!
