oa Agriprobe - Global worming against global warming?

Volume 9, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1810-9799



Shoprite-Checkers started an earthworm farm at their packing stores in Kraaifontein to dispose of their organic waste in a responsible way; the vermicast was used in their office gardens. When they wanted to expand their buildings, something had to make way and the worms were chosen. They decided to stick to their principle of "dispose of in a responsible way" and contacted a few educational institutions. The Elsenburg Agricultural College was first on the list, and so Ernst Möller, lecturer at the college, became the adopted father of around 113 000 red wigglers overnight. The entire infrastructure, from the worm bins to the stands and the glass house were kindly donated by Shoprite-Checkers - together with a crash-course for Ernst in baby-sitting worms.
