The Urban Worm

worm bin1 worm bin 4 worm bin 3 The Urban Worm is a project set up to promote responisble processing of waste using Wormerys. This year a group of artists were invited down to help support this rapidly growing scheme by adding a decorative touch to some of the converted wheely bins at Nottinghams Riverside festival. There was a massive range of work produced, I decided to make a dense worm pattern to describe exactly what was going on inside! No messin'. Plus a nice infinity cycle Worm on the lid. All done with Montana sprays applied with brushes. There's a link at the bottom to their web page and photos of all the Wormeries. Afterwards the Wormeries headed out to local schools -where children can learn valuable lessons about the waste cycle, and businesses, where they can reduce waste costs and support a more holistic approach to their green endevours. 'Nurturing people, plants and the planet is at the heart of what we do. We want to help build sustainable societies and cities that thrive in the face of adversity, and we believe the humble composting earthworm is a key player in tackling food waste and sustainable food production.' As well a converting wheely bins into mini compost factories and worm houses they provide all the means and info to get started yourself. Go see them for more info www.theurbanworm   Save Save
