A North Texas Hello

Post  charkay1 on 2/16/2014, 6:29 pm

Since I own a vermiculture business, gardening has become a great hobby for me.  When I saw the SFG idea, I was sold!! I can't wait to get my boxes built and start gardening.

glad you\'re here 

What a great business tie in.  Selling a product that is a basic part of the Square Foot Garden.  There is another vermiculite business person who has help out a lot on the forum,  PVPind   I can see copies of Mel's book sitting on your counter to introduce SFG.
Perhaps you can get your instructors certification as well.

Thanks for the welcome but I think you are confusing vermiculture with vermiculite.  Vermiculture is the raising of earthworms to market worm castings.  I produce worms castings which I bag and sell on both the wholesale and retail market.  It definitely will be a part of my mix, though.

You are so right, I just skipped the last part of the word.  But the idea may still be good.

I have 2 worm bins that I use castings from.  I usually use the castings in the form of tea and use it on veggies and flowers.
