Organic Worm Castings

Organic Worm Castings are one of the best natural materials on the planet for growing plants.  It's the platinum of soil amendments.  And just like hard working miners toiling for Platinum, we work really long and hard to make some great worm castings.

 

It starts outdoors in our organic aerated static pile compost piles.  After 3-4 weeks of composting, we dig into those piles and pull out some partially composted material for our worm bins.  Our piles have been at 140F for at least 72-hours straight, killing any pathogens or weed seeds in the material.

 

The material is mixed with Wawa Coffee Grounds and spends a couple of months in our worm bins where thousands of worms work their magic.  Finally, we harvest, screen to 1/4", and bag the material for your use.

 

These organic worm castings are an amazing soil amendment.  It can be mixed with topsoil and used as a potting mix.  It can be soaked in water and make compost tea which can then be applied as a liquid fertilizer.  Use it in your garden, use it indoors, or add it to your flowers.

We also include our compost and worm castings to provide an additional boost of nutrients and beneficial microorganisms. Finally, we mix in coconut coir to get the nutrient levels to a good balance for the mycorrhizal fungi, and the extra volume makes it easier to measure and spread the product consistently over a large area.

 

This product is great for working into your garden beds, or giving your potted plants or seed starting mix a bio-boost.

Topsoil

Our topsoil is a carefully tested blend of our compost and ground soil that is screened to 1/2". It's great for increasing your soil depth for in-ground gardens and lawns, and for filling in low spots in your yard. You could also use it for lasagna gardening or no-dig gardening.

 

Please note: soil has a natural tendency to get compacted in containers, which will result in poor aeration and poor drainage. We do not recommend using our topsoil in containers or deep (taller than 8-12 inches) raised beds. See our FAQ page for affordable options for filling a raised bed.

Non-Compost Items

Over the years, we have come across opportunities to keep some non-compost items out of the landfill.  The items below are great for use around the garden, or maybe you can find other uses for them.

Burlap Coffee Bags - $1 each - OUT OF STOCK

We know, its kind of a random thing for a compost operation to have.  But, we work with a coffee roaster who gets coffee delivered in these bags - so we though we should try to find a home for them.  They are made from burlap and are 27" x 38".  If you want to use them at home, in the garden, or for a cool craft project then grab a few.

55 Gallon Plastic Drums

Food Grade Barrels  - They used to hold coffee flavoring (French Vanilla or Hazelnut). You would need to wash them out in order to get rid of the nice scent. We have blue drums available right now. There are two 2" screw caps on top. $25 each.

IBC Totes - $50 Each

We have IBC Totes available for pickup in Aberdeen, MD.  They are sourced from a local manufacturing operation.

Wooden Shipping Crates - $30 Each - OUT OF STOCK

These wooden shipping crates are repurposed from a local food manufacturer.  They are great to use as a raised bed, compost bin, storage box, or anything else you can imagine.
