Werking Worms is an urban worm farm located in the heart of Ottawa. We are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact food waste has on our planet by putting worms to werk! Food waste in landfills generates greenhouse gases, contributing to global warming. Our goal is to bring vermicomposting mainstream so more people can easily reduce their environmental impact through the magic of vermicomposting.
Reducing food waste 1 worm at a time
“ What we compost today, becomes the soil for tomorrows food”
It’s estimated that 40% of food in a household ends up in the trash, and eventually in landfills. When food waste decomposes buried in landfills it doesn't have access to fresh oxygen from the atmosphere. This lack of oxygen during decomposition generates greenhouse gasses like methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Vermicomposting is an easy and effective way to break this cycle!
What is vermicomposting?
Vermicomposting is a method of composting where worms eat up organic matter - like food scraps - and excrete super fertile soil called worm castings. Yes, it’s actually that simple!
