This is an improved and rapid version of composting aided by earthworms (Eisenia fetida) which consume decaying organic matter and excrete worm castings - an excellent soil conditioner. The company aims to incorporate a circular approach with handling waste in Botswana and holistically improve the well-being of the nation.
