Our in-house worms have been busy turning our leftover coffee grounds, fruits, and veggies into their own special compost.
What are worm castings? The end product of organic matter broken down by worms. Worm castings are also called worm humus, vermicastings, vermicompost, or simply “worm poop.”
Worm castings are great for house plants as well as in the garden. They enhance plant and root growth by providing an excellent, nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner. Castings can be up to 30 times stronger than backyard compost and release nutrients slowly, feeding your plants with a super-nutritious fertilizer that is all natural and chemical-free.
Worm Castings can be mixed directly into the soil or steeped in water (anywhere from a few hours to a few days) and made into a compost tea. Compost tea has been said to prevent some pests from invading your plants, while still adding vital nutrients to your plants.
Worm castings cost $5/pound and are available at PRC’s Pittsburgh office, located at 64 South 14th Street, Pittsburgh, PA, 15203 (South Side). To order, please contact Nancy Martin-Silber at 412-488-7490 ext. 247 or email@example.com.
