Vermicomposting team in Laguna, Philippines, gets a boost

The Goducate team in Laguna has been cultivating vermicompost as a means of generating income to help cover some expenses — for example, the maintenance and registration of vehicles. About a year ago, we were delighted to get an order for about 100 sacks of the compost from Batangas, the province next to Laguna. However, since then there was no such large order. Yet we were not discouraged. We continued producing the compost for sale locally.

Early last month we began to market the vermicompost online, and were pleasantly surprised to get an inquiry from a farm owner in Batangas. This man visited us and was impressed by the quality of  product, saying that it is better than that of other vermifarms in Laguna and Batangas. He ordered 30 sacks.

We have also been trying out a new machine, a vermiseparator, for harvesting the compost. We borrowed this machine, and found that harvesting with this machine is faster than harvesting manually.
