World Soil Day 2021: Vermicomposting

Worms are highly underrated, and their services to humankind goes unnoticed below the surface, and are therefore unappreciated. But not so for advocates of vermicomposting like Prof Dr Chan Yoo Kuen, who understands the vital role worms play in keeping us healthy and nourished. It was World Soil Day on the 5th of December, and in conjunction with that, Prof Chan, who is a CEO – Chief Earthworm Officer - and vermicomposting advocate, joins us to share how and why we should all get on the vermicomposting bandwagon. She will also share basic tips for anyone to get started on their vermicomposting journey.
