Business conference planned for worm farms

More than 50 worm farms will meet in Phoenix, Arizona at the Arizona Worm Farm at the first annual U.S. Worm Business Conference.

The conference will focus on how to start, expand, or perfect Worm composting and waste reduction, according to a news release about the event.

Global climate change, combined with dramatically increased interest in organic waste reduction and desire to create sustainable, productive soils for agriculture has led to a global shortage of Worms and worm products, according to the news release. This conference is designed to help small and tangential business get into, or perfect, the worm business.

The wholesale price of worms has jumped from $15 per pound in 2020 to an average of more than $35 a pound today and demand now significantly exceeds supply, according to the news release.

The conference will provide coaching, hands-on training, and business advice and recommendations from leading experts in the U.S. Worm Farming community, including three of the United States’ most respected worm farmers: Zach Brooks, Arizona Worm Farm, Heather Rinaldi, Texas Worm Ranch, and Steve Churchill, Urban Worm Bag.

“There has never been a better time to build or expand a Worm Farming business,” Zach Brooks, owner and founder of the Arizona Worm Farm said in the news release. “The world is craving sustainable waste reduction and highly productive organic growing methods. Prices have never been higher and demand has never been greater. This conference is the perfect first step to joining this modern-day “black gold” rush.”
