Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to interview Heather Rinaldi of the Texas Worm Ranch. As luck would have it, Heather and I hit it off over our e-mail exchanges and that interview turned out to be one of my most popular yet.
Though vermicomposters tend to be very knowledgeable about what worm castings do for soil and plants, Heather has a next-level grasp on why the microbiology of vermicompost, especially her fungal-dominant variety, is so beneficial for plant growth, pathogen suppression, water retention, and soil remediation.
My “day job” as an pilot for Southwest Airlines requires that I make an annual trip to Dallas each year to demonstrate that I’m no danger to the flying public. So I was more than pleased when Heather offered to give me a tour of the Texas Worm Ranch on my latest visit in August. See More!
