Pluvr’s vermicompost is made by its 320,000 earthworm employees (specifically the Eisenia Fetida, aka the red wiggler). These organics are blended with local leaves to make the perfect carbon to nitrogen compost recipe. The leaves and food are fed to an in-vessel composter where the thermophilic (‘hot’) compost process takes place, killing all pathogens and weed seeds to meet USDA NOP regulations on pathogen reduction.
Compost material from the in-vessel composter, once at ambient temperature, is then fed to our earthworms who gobble it up in continuous flowthrough reactors. The worms then ‘secrete’ worm castings, which are harvested along with a small percent of the bedding that isn’t eaten to form our premium vermicompost.
Pluvr carefully partners with local restauranters to source our compost inputs - always pure and uncontaminated food scraps and coffee grounds.
