"The garden of my new house was completely tiled and I wanted to make a green space. When I saw how much fun it is to make vermicompost in the city I started looking for ways to inspire more people to do the same."
"I was told by some of the participants that they started eating more healthy food after taking part in the project; they wanted to have leftovers for the worms and chose to buy fresh vegetables and fruits instead of eating processed foods."
"In Amsterdam green waste is not collected in a sustainable way. It is such a pleasure to see so many people excited to start composting and use their organic waste for the benefit of their environment and grow stronger communities."
"It still takes too much effort for residents to get approval from the city to place a worm hotel. If the city would make it easier, the worm hotel network would grow faster and we could show the impact of urban composting on our city."
