At the start of the 19th century, it is assumed that 100% of North American inhabitants composted and vermicomposted. It is a process that remains active today in only a few pockets of the modern world. While nations such as Cuba and Chile have embraced its benefits, further mechanized societies have left it behind.
‘SQUIRM’ is the story of Cathy Nesbitt, Canada’s foremost authority on vermicomposting. Tracing the history of the agricultural practice back to Cleopatra, this unique documentary examines the role played by the red wiggler worm throughout history to the modern-day campaign of Cathy’s Crawly Composters.
Squirm is the name for a group of worms. It is also the name of the documentary about Cathy Nesbitt and how she started her Vermicomposting business Cathy's Crawly Composters.
