I wrote about this on the Red Worm Composting blog this morning, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to make mention of it over here as well.
This morning I was pleasantly surprised when a delivery person rang the doorbell, with a cardboard box in hand. I knew it could only be one thing – worm castings, care of the friendly folks at Worm Power (RT Solutions)! Whoohoo!
One of the awesome things about being an active (and I like to think, passionate) blogger in a particular field is that it’s a great way to connect with cool people doing really neat things (like making worm compost for a living!). I’ve written about Worm Power (on the RWC blog – see Worm Power and Worm Power Videos) a couple times over the past few months, and have had quite a few friendly exchanges with them as a result.
These e-mail exchanges eventually led me to inquire about purchasing some worm castings, so that I could test them out for myself. Of course, having multiple worm composting systems (several of which I could literally reach down a touch as I type – well ok, that would make for some awkward typing), I COULD get my hands on some worm castings if I needed to, and I’ve already proven to myself how well the stuff works (via previous experimentation). But when it comes down to it, I’ve always wanted to try out castings produced in a state-of-the-art ‘flow-through reactor’ (pretty well the ultimate in professional worm composting systems).
Long story, short…rather than telling me how much it was going to cost me (as would be expected), they offered to send me a 3 lb tub of castings to play with! (thanks again, guys!) – yet another advantage of having a ‘voice’ in the online composting arena I guess.
Anyway, I can’t wait to start playing with my new tub o’ dirt! It’s going to be a lot of fun. Needless to say, I’ll keep my readers up to date with any fun activities/results worth mentioning (lots of interesting stuff planned, and certainly not just limited to worm castings!).
