After taking a little time to rest, recalibrate and have some big conversations with my wife, Liora, I decided to look for more of a sense of purpose in my next chapter.
Little Buddies was born out of deep concerns around the state of our soils, and in response to the growing problem of poorly managed waste. By diverting organic waste from landfill, we can reduce harmful emissions and safely return valuable nutrients to the soil, as nature intended.
Little Buddies is named for the army of worms that speed up the composting process and produce rich vermicompost, which can then be used to boost soils with valuable minerals, nutrients, and microorganisms.
Composting is a vital part of the solution to our organic waste problem and vermicomposting (worm farming) has the added benefit of returning nutrients to the soil much more quickly than other methods.
We collect waste paper, food scraps and even spent hops and yeast from offices, cafes, restaurants and other businesses in Cambridge and the surrounding area. The waste is converted into a high quality soil conditioner, which is then used on local farms, orchards and gardens.
We’ve created a completely circular system that processes waste locally, without trucking it around the country to mega-facilities, which means less transport, less diesel and lower emissions.
