Worm Grower making ranchettes seeking recyclables

Page history last edited by unityfire888@... 13 years, 2 months ago
Aloha.
The following letter is from our recently deceased friend and vermihero, Steve Perry. One of his dying wishes was for someone (or several ones) would carry on the work of recycling 5 gal buckets (or other used bins) by converting them into worm bins thtat people can use in their houses, carports, and even apartments.
Anyone who feels inspired to carry on this lofty work, please do. Steve was fulfilling an important role on Kauai.
Really.
Feel free to contact us if you need more info.
 
 
 
 
Aloha, 
I'm using recycled material to make cheap, simple worm 'ranchettes' for all the people on Kauai willing to recycle organic waste into beautiful compost.
 
I need: 
CONTAINERS  ---  3 - 15 gallon, heavy-duty plastic buckets, boxes, pails or tubs in 'nesting' multiples of 3, with 1 lid/trio. (cleaner is better)
 
WORM BEDDING --- shredded paper, saw dust/wood shavings, grass clippings, coconut husks, etc.
 
WORM FOOD --- the perfect food would be table scraps and prep waste from a VEGAN restaurant. (Worms don't like meat or dairy 'cos they rot too fast.)
 
Bliss would be people who live in (or drive through) Hanama`ulu and regularly could put some FOOD waste from a VEGAN restaurant into a CONTAINER and drop it at my house. Maybe neighbors would even drop off kitchen waste regularly in rotating buckets. From this ideal we work down to someone who stops by to get a worm ranchette of their own.
 
If you are interested in helping in the Garden, please contact me.
 
NEW NEED: Because of demand I need cinder/concrete/cement blocks (8x8x8 or 8x8x16) sufficient to support a full size bathtub  8" to 16" off ground (maybe even another old tub).
 
Mahalo,
Steve
