From the outset, we knew red Vermicompost worms are abundant in the soil of Gileboom ecolodge. These worms eat lots of things. What they create is as valuable as honey made by a honeybee. Like cattle manure, this has no seeds, so farmers and gardeners are not involved in pruning weeds.
Organic wastes, including vegetable residue, fruits and potato peels, papers and tissue papers, cartons and three leaves, are a good food for these worms.
The maximum efficacy of these worms is at a temperature between 16 and 22˚ C.
We dug some pits in the courtyards behind the house, pouring garbage into it and then dropping a layer of soil on it. We also use rice husks or straw and, of course, sea sand to cover the garbage. Rise husks and sands are needed to retain moisture and for better digestions of garbage in the digestive system of worms, respectively. The worms get good fertilizer for six months.
The fertilizers are poured onto trees. Compost is pale black and sometimes dark gray.
