Altruistic Organic Fertilizer Technology
Byoearth is a Social Venture Preserving the Planet

By: Rebecca Byers (Star) Sep 4, 12

Byoearth is a Guatemalan-based social venture preserving the planet through vermiculture & vermicomposting. Founded in 2007, the enterprise was originally aimed as an effort toward poverty-eradication in rural areas but has now expanded into vulnerable urban centers.

In partnership with SiKanda (Mexico) and with support and mentorship from the Unreasonable Institute, Byoearth and its founder Maria Rodriguez created Worms 4 Change, a global network of vermicomposters. The networked organization endeavors to champion its view that vermicomposting represents an important tool for development.

Byoearth uses red worms in the development of its sustainable projects, employing worm casting biotechnology. There are currently 45 women participating in Byoearth’s ‘Fertilize Your Future’ project, which educates them on vermiculture and entrepreneurship in order to improve their daily lives.
