About the Project

Customize This Project

It is planned to select 5 villages in Sanand taluka and install, own, operate and maintain in each of them, 2.50-ton composting material backed by a 1500 sq.yds. agro net based shed and 125 tractor trolleys of agro waste besides fencing and watering facility. Land for composting units would be leased in from local panchayat. The first lot of 125 tractor trolleys would convert to vermin compost in 6 – 8 weeks. It will also produce about 350-450 kg additional earthworms per location. Five such units will yield an adequate quantity of additional earthworms for one additional unit every alternate month. Vermin compost will be bartered with fresh cow dung / agro waste at a processing fee of Rs.2500 per trolley. The project would get raw material delivered at the site from manure seekers for the next round. Additional earthworms from multiple locations will be used to put up unit(s) in the adjacent village(s). In about 3 years from start, we may cover all 52 villages of Sanand Taluka with our Vermin compost units to produce 800-1000 tractor trolleys equivalent vermin compost annually. A unit may also produce and sell nursery saplings of green vegetables like chilly, tomato, brinjal, and crops like paddy, etc. as additional economic enterprise within the setup cost. A block of 10 bio-toilets drawing water from Vermin compost unit and decomposed excreta gone to the composting beds will also be constructed for the local community.

An amount of Rs.15lacs will cover one location.
