Earthworm power

I just spotted an article on Inquirer which talks about how earthworms can help ease up the urban waste problem.

Vermicomposting refers to the process of using earthworms to turn organic waste into vermicompost — also known as vermicast, worm compost, worm castings, worm humus or worm manure — a high quality natural fertilizer and soil conditioner.

I don’t plan on setting up my own earthworm farm anytime soon, because no matter how many good qualities they possess, I still find them icky. But kudos to the groups who have discovered this great solution to the waste problem in the city.
