"Worms are the intestines of the soil." - Aristotle

We’re keeping your organic waste out of landfill and turning it into nutrient-dense compost, as nature intended.

When organic waste ends up in landfill, it rots and produces leachate & powerful greenhouse gasses.  There is a better way. We receive organic waste from businesses around the Waikato and turn it into useful vermicompost with the help of our Little Buddies (worm farms).

Let us help your business dispose of waste in an environmentally responsible way that reduces carbon emissions. Through our local network of vermiculture (worm farming) sites, we convert organic waste into a rich soil conditioner that replenishes our soils and helps to grow the next crop of fresh, local goodness.
