Worms and black soldier flies




I visited with Doug Knippel of Northwest Redworms in Camas, Washington yesterday. Doug has 10 acres that he uses to: make large scale compost, make small scale premium compost, raises various species of earthworms, raises chickens, and raises black soldier flies. He has lots of projects going on.

Black soldier flies are a great composter, they can eat lots that worms will not touch. They are voracious eaters and the matured grubs can be fed to chickens (chickens love them!) and fish.



He's a great guy working hard to help recycle organic waste from local stores into useful gardening products. I volunteered to help out and learn about his processes. We'll see how it goes.
