As a newly retired Registered Nurse with a passion for human health,  I am most curious about our connection to the soil (Gia, earth) which is our soul source of  essential nutrition.  Vitamins, minerals and  gases (the most important being oxygen and carbon dioxide) find their roots in a soil community and the biological chemistry that exists between the members of that community. When I think about life and follow our journey, the story always ends with a journey back to the soil.

What is  worm composting?  Worm composting begins with household vegetable wastes and ends with worm casting or worm poop!  Why worm compost?  Worm castings are filled with life. There are billions of plant bio-available beneficial bacteria, fiber, vitamins, & minerals in the castings. When you add fresh castings to the soil you are inoculating the soil with a living mass that will continue to grow and spread throughout your soil environment, providing the essential nutrition for a healthy soil.  “How to Build a Worm Composting Bin” is an instructional video guide created in Mazatlan, Mexico.  In the video, I explain how to find the materials needed and how to build a compost bin.
