Rumours of the demise of the OPIRG Vermicompost worms are premature – a rescue mission is underway. Randy checked on the worms condition today – contrary to what you may have heard, the red wigglers were very much alive, and very much wiggly.

A design flaw in the bin will soon be addressed to permit better circulation/drainage, and it appears the worms are digging in for the long haul under Randy’s desk (he just needs to get the desk…but that’s another story).

Stay tuned, there are sure to be twists and turns, and of course, wiggles.
