You can help us make a difference
Did you know that organic waste is a huge environmental problem? In Australia, 7 million tonnes of organic waste every year is sent to landfill. When organic waste is dumped in landfill it decomposes anaerobicly, producing methane, a green house gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
Luckily, there is a simple, easy solution to this problem - worm farming!
Worms are nature's organic waste disposal system
Not only do they get rid of decomposing organic matter, they do it without producing dangerous greenhouse gasses. Instead, the bi-products from worms are natural liquid fertiliser and worm castings, both of which have the wonderful benefit of nurturing our gardens, helping us to produce more delicious food. It's a beautiful cycle!
Everyone can be part of the solution
We all love food and eating out at cafes, and we can all be a part of the solution by processing organic waste at home with a worm farm. While you're at it, why not go the extra mile and help by picking up organic waste from your local cafe?
The Melbourne Worm Ranch makes it easy!
We connect cafes with volunteers to help convert organic cafe waste to an optimal soil enricher
We've set up the system to make this as easy as possible. Our cafes and volunteers take very little time out of their week, and become a part of a growing community of people committed to making a difference.
