About the author

Henry Teaching a Worm Composting WorkshopMy name is Henry Owen. I fell in love with nature as a child at summer camp and on family camping trips. I believe that all people need to be connected to nature and that all children deserve opportunities for imaginative, exploratory, nature-based play. I co-founded and directed Friendship Gardens, a nonprofit project that grows food for meals-on-wheels in Charlotte, NC before moving to Texas to serve the Nature Discovery Center as Executive Director.

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.
