About the author of WormCompostingHQ.com
My name is Henry Owen. My day job is directing Friendship Gardens, a nonprofit project I helped start that teaches gardening and grows food for Friendship Trays, our local meals on wheels program. Friendship Trays serves 750 meals each weekday and I am responsible for composting all the food waste from meal prep! 750 meals a day means a lot of onion peels, apple cores, and broccoli stems. We use three large flow through worm composters and many thousands of red wigglers to eat through all that food waste each day. Informally and professionally, I have been teaching people to worm compost since 2008.
I have a 2 year old son who loves to play in the dirt with me and has only tried to eat a worm once. 🙂
