Wow, I just realised it’s been almost 5 months since our last entry!

But we have been up to our necks for a reeaally really good reason.

Remember what I said about building an aquaponics startup in Singapore?

Well, we’ve got a video which we are incredibly excited to share with you.

Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wanted to start vermicomposting using red/blue worms but have no idea where to acquire them. Any idea where i can get my hands on some?

    Hi Michelle,

    I stumbled upon your fascinating blog through online research on indoor apartment composting solutions.. I’m curious if you have any insight on the electric composters like the Naturemill & the Red Dragon? I’d like to think I could handle vermicomposting, but the little guys give me the major heebs.. I know electric composting isn’t exactly the greenest solutions, but the Naturemil’s hard sell on their website makes me rethink it as a viable option?

    Note that I’m currently renting the smallest place in the world and saving to buy a tiny condo with a balcony, so right now, indoor is the only option for me.

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can share!

      Hi J! Our sincere apologies for this extremely belated reply. We always do encourage feedback and questions, while trying our best to reply the quickest we can! Nevertheless, starting this blog aside from our fulltime work, has been one of the best and most enjoyable decisions ever made ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ah yes, we can completely understand the space constraints for small apartments – we live in one ourselves! Thank God we do have some space at our communal corridors for our small-sized DIY compost bins. We would also like to try electric composters like NatureMill one day. In fact, it’s the only electric composter we are quite familiar with as we have done some research online before.

      The only concerns we would have are the noise (we heard it can be quite cranky/creaky/clanky while the composter is at work). Other than that, it costs quite a bomb (based on our opinion) and we are not too sure just how much electricity it would consume to turn a small amount of household waste into fertiliser.

      Another good alternative would be Bokashi composting, as it would be definitely cheaper and requires no electricity, as it breaks down using bacteria which would already have been supplied with the air-tight bin. The only factor to consider would be finding a suitable place to bury the composted material – which is actually a yoghurt-like material that will easily turn into soil/compost once it is buried in soil (i.e. in some backyard, garden or field somewhere).

      Right now, my dad’s vermicomposting for close to a year now, and has grown quite fond of it. You should try if you are feeling adventurous! ๐Ÿ˜‰
