Sophisticated methods are not the only solution to sustainability says Dr.Sultan Ahmed Ismail . He is currently the director of Ecoscience Research foundation and has been an academician since 1972.He has been a pioneer in the practice and research of vermiculture and is the person who coined the term “Vermitech”.In his talk on Urban Ecology and Resilience held at Raman Auditorium , AC Tech he gave insights that is a fruit of almost 45 years of his studies and research. #urbanthinkerscampus2018 #urbanecology #sultanismail #urban #vermitech #aarde #lecture #annauniversity #workshop #unhabitat #pulicat #wetlands #pulicatlake #thesoakingcity #chennai #climate #weather #architecture #architectureevents #architectureworkshops #chennaievents #aardefoundation #chennaiworkshop #unhabitat #vernacular #native #monsoon #ecoscience #vermiculture #conservationist #vowelsindia

We are starting another half barrel this week. We are using some of the soil we had in containers that now have very little nutrients in it and adding the 2 types of compost we currently make at home. We should end up with soil that is full of nutrients for the plants and maintains a good balance of air and moistue. #zerowaste   #waste #sustainability #environment #eco   #living   #lifestyle   #design #recycling   #world   #life #compost #foodwaste #food    #composting #soil #fertilizer #ecodesign #reuse #ecofriendly #sustainable #green #permaculture #wormfarm #wormcastings #worms #vermicompost #worms #vermiculture

This is about halfway to my goal. Might be further along if my adorable beast of a pup would stop eating the garden every chance he gets 😊 Good thing he’s cute (but see, he won’t make eye contact...guilty!) The only bummer has been having to adjust to using soil out of a bag versus cultivating my own, but I believe I found a worm bin that is small enough to make some really good things happen in this space! #balconygarden #rescuedog #vermiculture #urbangarden #minimalist #crazyplantlady

#FunFact In a study on the efficiency of household composting, researchers had a series of households compost for an entire year and tracked the waste they avoided. They found that, on average, composting saved 277 pounds of waste per person per year. Those scraps would otherwise have gone to a landfill or other garbage treatment facility. The results of the study, the researchers say, show that organic waste that would normally be placed in the garbage can be reduced by more than 80 percent. But if organic matter is always going to decompose, why does it matter if it does so above ground or under the cover of a landfill? When food decomposes in a landfill, it does so underground. That means that it doesn’t have any access to oxygen and undergoes a process called anaerobic decomposition. This releases methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. When organic matter decomposes above ground (in compost), it has access to oxygen and thus undergoes aerobic decomposition, which doesn’t generate methane. If you think composting is a dirty, unpleasant activity, that’s far from the truth. It can be really fun, like one big science experiment. How to Compost? Composting is a great project to do because it uses food and yard scraps that would otherwise be thrown away to make a nutrient-rich soil amendment. In order to make compost, you simply need a location where you can do it and a variety of biodegradable scraps, preferably from both your kitchen and your yard. With simple things and a bit of ongoing care, you can make quality compost to use in your yard. Making compost correctly will allow you to feed your plants essential nutrients and make your soil more fertile, all while using items that would otherwise go into your trash. #Composter #VermiCompost #Compost #CompostMachine #WhatIsCompost #CompostingProcess #WetWaste #OrganicWaste #WhatIsComposting #VermiCulture #CompostingAtHome #CompostPit #CompostBin #BenefitsOfComposting #TypesOfComposting

Why Compost? • Healthier Plants Organic matter is known as the “soul of a healthy soil.” Adding compost to your yard or garden will help your plants grow bigger and better. The organic matter in compost helps soil hold on to nutrients and water, benefiting your plants while reducing the risk of pollution. • Composting Saves You Money Using compost as a soil conditioner or mulch reduces your need to purchase these lawn and garden products. Composting in your backyard may reduce your trash removal costs. Many sanitation companies charge customers by the bag. Your compost bin could decrease the number of bags your household generates. • Composting is practical and convenient No need to bother bagging leaves and other garden/yard wastes. Simply add them to your backyard pile or bin and watch these items turn into rich dark humus. • Composting is a good alternative to landfilling or incinerating convenient Our yard and garden wastes account for almost 20% of the total amount of trash thrown away each year. Your choice to compost reduces the need to burn or bury organic material and increases the quality of our precious topsoil. #Composter #VermiCompost #Compost #CompostMachine #WhatIsCompost #CompostingProcess #WetWaste #OrganicWaste #WhatIsComposting #VermiCulture #CompostingAtHome #CompostPit #CompostBin #BenefitsOfComposting #TypesOfComposting

What Is Composting? Composting is nature's way of recycling. Composting biodegrades organic waste. i.e. food waste, manure, leaves, grass trimmings, paper, wood, feathers, crop residue etc., and turns it into a valuable organic fertilizer. Composting is a natural biological process, carried out under controlled aerobic conditions (requires oxygen). In this process, various microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi, break down organic matter into simpler substances. The effectiveness of the composting process is dependent upon the environmental conditions present within the composting system i.e. oxygen, temperature, moisture, material disturbance, organic matter and the size and activity of microbial populations. Composting is not a mysterious or complicated process. Natural recycling (composting) occurs on a continuous basis in the natural environment. Organic matter is metabolized by microorganisms and consumed by invertebrates. The resulting nutrients are returned to the soil to support plant growth. Composting is relatively simple to manage and can be carried out on a wide range of scales in almost any indoor or outdoor environment and in almost any geographic location. It has the potential to manage most of the organic material in the waste stream including restaurant waste, leaves and yard wastes, farm waste, animal manure, animal carcasses, paper products, sewage sludge, wood etc. and can be easily incorporated into any waste management plan. Since approximately 45 - 55% of the waste stream is organic matter, composting can play a significant role in diverting waste from landfills thereby conserving landfill space and reducing the production of leachate and methane gas. In addition, an effective composting program can produce a high quality soil amendment with a variety of end uses. The essential elements required by the composting microorganisms are carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and moisture. If any of these elements are lacking, or if they are not provided in the proper proportion, the microorganisms will not flourish and will not provide adequate heat. A composting process that operates at optimum performance will convert organic matter into stable

Life, death, and everything in between.... This "terrarium" is just a few feet from my bed--I imagine my room has some of the highest biodiversity of bedrooms anywhere! 😂 There is something therapeutic about helping other living beings thrive, watching them go through their cycles of birth through death, while no single organism defines the state of the larger ecosystem....individual organisms come and go, but the collective is eternal in a way, in constant flux. Just some of my morning reflections watching my plants and worms... #soilfoodweb #livingorganicsoil #organiclivingsoil #homegrown #growyourown #beyondorganic #organic #permaculture #vermiculture #biodynamic #dusttodust #lifeinthesoil #life #puravida #bedroomterroir

To many people this is nasty 🤢 but those are the same people who don’t grow their own food!! Here we have chicken 🐓 shit, egg 🥚 shells and hay from neighbors that raise chickens. What I need is a chipper/shredder to get it fine minced but a hand rake will work for small batches. Every thing needs a little top dressing as mulch right now in this scorching heat 🔥🌞☀️ . . . . #compost #lifecycle #gardenofthegods #gardeningislife #vermiculture #gardengang #healthysoil #growfood #growthineown

Tough job today. Had to go in and fix the #vermiculture bin...chopping up compost, mix it with hay, and shoveling it in to the bin. Jobs like these sure kill the idealized and romanticized aspects of gardening, and bring me back to the reality of #growingorganically. It’s all worth it in the end but certainly remains me to #thankyourfarmer 🙏✨💕

This is what it looks like when 100 bags of Castings from The Worm Shed are put to work! This Toona ciliata (Red Cedar) is under stress and has lost 3 major limbs in 12 months. The recommendation following the Arborist's tree health report, was to add Worm Castings around the base of the tree to 100mm, to encourage microorganisms & mycorrhizal fungi activity in the soil. #wormcastings #thewormshed #perth

Happy Jorge worm grower showing off his ladies. We've got a little spot on campus outside where they keep to themselves and are steadily increasing in number. A little shelter and some good air circulation and moisture. It's just a container lined in plastic with a metal screen on top, keep it off the ground, and don't forget to feed them. These ladies are easy to multiply, just a little food compost every week or so and they are happy.

ZOOM IN! YA yo BOY is a vermiculture MANIAC Lol! FOR REAL tho I DO RAISE(BREED-PRODUCE) WORMS(RED WIGGLERS/and a few night crawlers) I DO NOT SELL WORMS lol-I breed WORMS for there Castings aka POOP-WHY? THE CIRCLE OF LIFE-FAMILY! Meaning worms break down ORGANIC MATTER(all left over veggie scraps, fruit scraps(all nitrogen related ORGANIC matter)-as well all Carbon related non-toxic matter -cardboard,leaves, sticks, paper and so on) after eating the carbon and nitrogen ingredients I feed them-the WORMS PRODUCE castings(poop) the castings are NUTRITIONALLY/organicainally/DEBATABLY lol the Best type of ORGANIC FERTILIZER(FOOD) u want to feed your Edible PLANTS-or all plants! THE CIRCLE OF LIFE FAMILY-hense my prior post showing u a pic of the juice I consume and the JUICE POOP(FIBER) excreted from the Juicer as WASTE-now that waste is the FINEST FOOD for your WORMS-why? because the leftover fiber is mushed/broken down and easily consumed by WORMS vs having to slowly break down a Banana peel ect(which they will do,but just takes longer) GO GREEN=LESS WASTE FOR OUR LANDFILLS=FREE ORGANIC FERTILIZER FOR YOUR EDIBLES(btw check your local nursery on prices of WORMCASTINGS-FREAKIN EXPENSIVE)=GROWING BEYOND ORGANIC a product(FRUIT/VEGGIES) that cannot be purchased in stores=THE CIRCLE OF LIFE FAMILY! OK now what do I do with the CASTINGS specifically-i do many methods(ORGANIC FERTILIZER) for my in ground FRUIT Trees- but the CASTINGS I specifically use on my raised veggie beds-why? Because I DEEP MULCH/COMPOST in place around all in ground Edible trees allowing the beneficial bacteria/nematodes/WORMS/ect-all LIVING organisms are already hard at work creating an ENDLESS SUPPLY OF CASTINGS ect around my in ground FRUIT Trees-therefore adding castings is not necessary(basically my whole land is a worm farm under the MULCH) SO I add all the castings my WORMS bins create to my Rasied beds-as I rotate out a harvest from a raised bed-when I replant either in spring or fall-that's when YO BOY GETS DOWN AND DIRTY WITH MY WORM INFESTATION lol=harvesting the worm bins! Btw I built these worm bins-any questions lemme know! CIRLCE OF LIFE FAMILY! PEACE/LOVE/LIGHT.
