FROM FOOD WASTE TO SOIL

We are starting an exciting project in rural area of Southern Oregon: We are “hiring” an army of worms to digest food waste and convert it into the most beneficial natural product farmers have used for thousands of years.

ALL PURPOSE SOIL AMENDMENT

HealTerra Worm Poop

Worm poop is a high value material which, when blended with soil, can restore soil tilth. With only up to 20% of worm castings in the soil, plants also:

  • germinate better,
  • grow faster,
  • and produce higher yields.
  • Worm castings also improve soil aeration and drainage, and increase water retention in the soil. 

Information regarding the contents and levels of metals in HealTerra Worm Poop is available at aapfco.org/metals.

INCREASES YIELD

FIXES SOIL

SAVES WATER

Did you know that we only have 60 years of farming left if soil degradation continues at current rates?

About

30%

of the world’s soil has already been abandoned.

95%

of our food comes from the soil.

One of the causes of soil destruction include chemical-heavy farming techniques. As the global population grows, the need for soil restoration has never been more pressing.

Our Solution?

Worm Castings.

Also known as vermicast, vermicompost, and it is simply worm poop.

Worms convert food waste through their specialized digestive system into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner, worm castings. It is a natural product and you don’t need to look for anything else to grow healthy plants!

Who Are We?

HEALTERRA is a social enterprise of Source One Serenity, 501(c)3, a non-profit organization that empowers our veterans to reclaim their sense of purpose through outdoor activities and land stewardship.  

HEALTERRA  will also be the first recycling opportunity of its kind in our rural county where all recycling has been suspended in June 2018. We will also provide jobs for veterans with accommodation of their needs in a protective environment! They had it enough with horror and terror of the wars, we want to help them to adjust in the civilian community at a serene and mindful work place.
