Home-based Business Opportunities in Vermiculture (Vermicomposting).
Earthworms have been
Natures simple little helpers since the beginning of time and they have
solved some very complex problems. The earthworms have done what man
couldn't do successfully, which is recycle common
into a valued resource.
How much work is
involved in Vermicomposting?
You are already doing
most of the work, each time you haul your full trash cans to the curb.
Instead of hauling them out to the curb, just haul them to the backyard,
garage, shed, etc. and dump them into your
AVSA unit. You will make
about 25 cents per pound for all your organic garbage, newspapers, cardboard
boxes, lettuce leaves, grass clipping, leaves, even old cotton clothing!
Update: Its a lot more now, this was
back in 1998.
Okay, so everybody and his brother
are going to start doing this and the price of vermicompost will drop! These
AVSA units hold about a ton (2,000 pounds) of red worm castings
(vermicompost). Even at $.50 per lb. wholesale, you can still make
$3,000.00-$4,000.00 per year per unit, $6,000.00-$8,000.00 for stacked and
another stacked unit next to it (4'x8' floor space) $12,000.00-$16,000.00.
Stills not bad, for just GARBAGE and a 4'x8' corner of a building....UPDATE:
Check out the current selling price on the internet and do some new math!
Now, the GARBAGE, you can call it
whatever you please (recyclable green waste, kitchen scraps, chicken feed,
hog food, or whatever) but it is still GARBAGE! And you will quickly run out
of it !
GOOD NEWS, buy it from your
neighbors! You can easily pay your neighbors, etc, 10 cents per pound and
make 40 cents or more on their GARBAGE. You will be helping them out, they
will be paid for their garbage, instead of paying to have it hauled away.
You will help with the rapidly increasing problems of the public landfills,
and you will be making yourself some GOOD MONEY.
Call yourself "The Local
Environmental Recycling Agent!" instead of the guy/gal that buys GARBAGE!
Start a recycling
Co-op, where everyone brings their garbage (only nice clean garbage, no
bottles, cans, nor plastic please!) to one central location to be processed
and sold. Spilt up the money or use it to improve the neighborhood, build
parks or even help a needy family...
Where to sell it: Doesn't do much
good to have a garage full of vermicompost if nobody buys it! Contract with
the city, county, state, since this is a big political issue, it would be
hard for them to say NO!
It certainly would increase the
health of our children and pets that play in the parks, where the grass and
grounds are currently saturated in chemicals, to have a SAFE, NATURAL
environment. What could be more natural then earthworm castings ?
Once a person can show that they
can fulfill the big contracts with the major gardening centers, they would
be more then happy to start carrying Vermicompost. Its just that nobody has
been able to deliver the quantities that they would want. A neighborhood all
working together could do it!

possible to put Vermiculture indoors as a business, instead of outdoors as
Now, with this
Newly Designed AVSA Unit &
Process, it is possible to remove the vermicompost (castings) while
leaving the babies with the adult earthworms. Without tumbling, rolling,
shaking or letting one end of the bed dry out!
Now, simply open the
convenient front door of AVSA and remove the castings. The earthworm babies
and adults earthworms will remain in the unit, where they belong, and NOT be
tossed, tumbled, rolled or stressed. The earthworms will continue happily
eating away, undisturbed.
It doesn't stress
the earthworms and everybody knows that happy earthworms are better
Finally, a simple means of
separating earthworms from their castings has been Designed and a Simple
Process incorporated into it, that enables man to Profit substantially from
the earthworms Simple Solution to a Complex Problem.
