The brains behind this Dallas-based operation are “ecopreneurs” Robert Oliver and Karl Warkomski, the duo also responsible for the BioPod Plus
, “highly advanced, grub compost bins that utilizes native grubs to speed up the bioconversion process and produce nutritious feed for chickens, fish and songbirds.” Sounds groovy, if you’re into that kind of thing. Or perhaps you'd prefer the Hanging Worm Hotel
Says Warkomski in an official CompostMania.com press release:
Composting is a way to feed the earth through recycling – it’s a simple and low-maintenance way to create nutrient-rich soil that allows animals, plants and flowers to flourish. By reducing waste and giving nutrients back to the Earth, we can learn, create and experience the rhythms of a renewable life cycle.
If I had an actual garden and the physical space to compost (I’m still flirting with the idea of buying an indoor composter that would somehow work in my Brooklyn apartment as one of my still-unfulfilled green goals for ‘10) I'd certainly know where to turn for a $1,300 vermicompost tea brewer
and some sage advice.
And by the way, happy Cinco de Mayo/Bread Pudding Recipe Exchange Week/National Vinegar Month.
