Food gathered from SVSU is brought to the greenhouse
in buckets.

The food is then placed into worm bins. Our worms
are red wigglers or Lumbricus Rebellus. Under
ideal conditions, they can eat up to their body
weight in food waste every day! You can read more
about these fascinating creatures here.

After mixing in the food the worms get to work and
quickly consume the food waste.
