Busy Izzy's Compost Friend, 'Wormee'

Busy Izzy's Compost Friend, 'Wormee'

Here's Busy Izzy’s backyard friend, Wormee, to tell us all about making compost from food scraps.

 
"Hi friends! I’m Wormee. A 'compost vermi'.
I lead my little friends through all the scraps.
We live inside the compost bin that Izzy has out back, 
of her little store in Green Grass Grove, we call "Nix & Nax".
We're clever little red wigglers,
two to five inches in length.
Reddish-brown is our colour,
and vermi-composting is our strength.
 
Now, here's some information about our regeneration:
If somehow our tails accidentally disappear.
We'll stay alive and survive! We know they'll reappear.
The brilliance of our resilience is our special kind of knack, 
of growing parts of our little bodies back.

I'm Wormee, and I'm on a journey.
Just a taste of rotting waste, we'll all be moving in.
We're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin.

I LOVE compost and my friends and I feed on it and turn it from your food scraps into really useful fertiliser that's called 'Vermi-compost' because it is the product of the breakdown process helped by worms and usually red wigglers, like MEEEEE, and good friends of mine too. We all help to create the wonderful ‘plant food’, that you can spread around your plants and herbs in the garden.

Now, where is the best place to start? First, decide whether to use an open compost pile or a bin."

As Wormee says, he and his friends, help to turn food scraps, twigs and grass into nutritious fertiliser.

It's fun to make it all happen - Roxanne Kiely

Busy Izzy and Friends on YouTube:

Do you eat your veggies? Busy Izzy and her friends do, they love to eat healthy fruits and vegetables because they know it keeps them strong and healthy too.

Busy Izzy's veggie garden is at the back of Nix & Nax. There is a compost bin full of scraps from when Izzy makes and bakes healthy snacks. The compost bin has a little red wiggler worm called 'Wormee', a compost-vermi, and his friends who turn the scraps into vermi-compost. Just a taste of rotting waste, they all move in. They're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin.

Izzy has a beehive with honey bees. These hard working littlies pollinate the fruits and vegetables. Pollination occurs when insects such as bees visit flowers, collecting nectar and pollen. Pollen is rubbed onto the insect and is then rubbed off onto the next flower the insect visits.

Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.
Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.

We are thrilled to hear from parents and teachers of little ones about how much they love Busy Izzy and the Busy Izzy and Friends, children's picture books .  We love seeing the kids dressed as their favourite character.  

Here is 4 year old Zara, dressed as Busy Izzy, whom she loves by the way.  Her mum, said that Zara asks to have the Busy Izzy and Friends books read to her before bedtime. 

In Zara's mum's words,

"I read the books to Zara every night and she just loves them.  I have observed how  Zara appreciates Izzy's qualities and says, "When I grow up I want to be kind, thoughtful, helpful, and a wonderful friend just like Busy Izzy is to all her friends". I had to buy her a little puppet puppy just like Newly Truly, who is Izzy's clever rescue pup.

The Busy Izzy and Friends books are a must for all little ones, I love them as they teach the importance of empathy, kindness and being a great friend."

Thank you Zara's mum.
