About Plus 2 Vers

Is it really free?

Yes it is ! Plus 2 Vers is free to help as many people as possible to start vermicomposting.

Because worms are animals, and we think they do not belong to anyone.
We are simply taking advantage of their ability to transform our waste! It’s like a common good, as much as it’s free!

But how is Plus2vers financed?
The site is managed by the association Les Boîtes Vertes which supports the financial expenses for its animation, its improvements, …
The association Les Boîtes Vertes does not benefit from any other source of funding other than user donations (which cover only a small part of the expenses). Funding comes from the association’s own funds resulting from services (coordination of projects, events, etc.).

Is there a guide to start vermicomposting?
Here is the Plus2Vers link to « How to get a vermicomposter started ».
You will find a user manual illustrated with images and the most important points to respect.

There is a special page that tells you what kind of food you can give them or not.

Find all this information in the Resources area of the site!

On the site, you also have the opportunity to read the visitors’ questions as well as the answers I am trying to give.

What quantity of worms should be given to start a vermicompost ?

When you are registered as a donor of worms, you have access to your profile page (bottom left button) in the Donor Guide which tells you the minimum amount of worms to give. You will also find all kinds of advice for the people who start vermicomposting (the food, the rhythm…).

To sum it up : the more worms and litter you give, the better it will be for a good start

Can I add worms to my garden composter?
Even though worms used in vermicomposting and those in garden composters are the same, there is no point in adding them to a garden composter.

In a garden compost, worms and other organisms come from the ground and return to it when the conditions do not suit them.

If there are no worms in your composter, it’s because the conditions do not suit them. So adding any worms would be useless because they would just bury themselves into the ground.

If there are already some worms in your garden compost, they reproduce themselves at their own rhythm. So it’s not worth adding any.
