Worm Composting Program: The Wormery


Our latest green initiative at Western Fair District is an on-site worm farm. Noticing a need for our compostable green waste, we turned it into natural rich fertilizer through vermicomposting practises.

We would also like to send out a BIG thank you to those who have supported #TheWormery so far. Your contributions of green waste are helping us reduce emissions in the community and making our neighbourhood a little better place…one worm at a time!

Thank you:

  • Locomotive Espresso

  • Old East Village BIA
  • Old East Village Community Association
