Plants need more than just water and sunlight to grow. They need nutrients, and one of the best types of fertilizers known to man is vermicompost, aka. worm poop. In 2017 we looked at what type of pallet bin would work best for making vermicompost. Through this study we also found that organizations across Lower Brule were happy to take part in a food waste recycling program. We were able to take food waste, which otherwise would have gone to a landfill, and put it in the vermicompost bins we designed and built from scratch. We will see in the coming years exactly how well these bins work and if we can truly turn garbage into an important resource for the Lower Brule Community Garden.
