Hello and welcome to my worm composting page! I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
My name is Emily and I am the self-proclaimed “Crazy Worm Lady”. I am a night-shift nurse who loves worms– go figure.
I fell into vermicomposting about two years ago when I decided to start a garden. Organic was important to me and I wanted to do things right! When researching organic gardening, I came across this weird site about using worm poop (castings) as a super-charged organic fertilizer for my plants.
I was sold! I researched until my eyes were burning for nearly 6 hours in one day. I bought my first 1,000 worms that night and my passion and “collection” of composting worms has snowballed from there.
I now raise four different types of worms and use commercially-made as well as DIY worm composting systems. I am constantly pushing the limits and trying to learn and experiment more all the time.
I would love if you visit and take a peek at my YouTube channel that I have had up and running since October 2017. You can see what I mean when I say I am “crazy”!
I am now gardening both indoors and out. I use worm castings in all my seed starting mixes as well as to amend my soil in the garden.
I live in a rancher with a nice yard with my boyfriend of 13 years. We enjoy hunting (well he does), fishing and all things outdoors.
I am trying to live the healthiest life possible and this is just a part of my plan. Welcome and I hope you enjoy!
