About the author

Henry Teaching a Worm Composting WorkshopMy name is Henry Owen. My day job is directing Friendship Gardens, a nonprofit project I helped start that teaches gardening and grows food for Friendship Trays, our local meals on wheels program. Friendship Trays serves 750 meals each weekday and I am responsible for composting all the food waste from meal prep! 750 meals a day means a lot of onion peels, apple cores, and broccoli stems. We use three large flow through worm composters and many thousands of red wigglers to eat through all that food waste each day. Informally and professionally, I have been teaching people to worm compost since 2008.

I have two young boys who love to play in the dirt with me and rarely try to eat the worms. 🙂

Why I worm compost

I believe I should take responsibility for my own food waste instead of sending it to a landfill. Through worm composting, I not only take responsibility for my food waste, I turn a negative (food scraps) into a positive (worm poop) which helps me close the nutrient loop and grow more food for my family. Also, worm composting is fun.

Why I started this website

Worm Composting in the Classroom

Worm Composting in the Classroom

I started Worm Composting HQ because I am passionate about teaching others about the benefits of worm composting. For my job, I often teach workshops, speak to gardening groups, and teach individuals to worm compost.

Having a website with all my ‘how to worm compost’ content in one location allows me to be a more efficient teacher and reach a wider audience.
