Former Babson Student Hopes to Change Local Fertilizer Industry

Posted by jcashman

A former Babson College student is hoping to bring organic fertilizer to a store near you. Nik Beisert, founder and CEO of Earthworm Soil is using worms to create organic fertilizer.

It is done through a process called vermicompost which uses earthworms to turn organic wastes into very high quality compost.

Beisert told the Boston Herald he hopes to be selling a bagged product in the next month.

“We will retail it for them because we found that most of these composting producers are in the business of just producing a product,” Beisert said. “They’re not in the business of marketing and retail.”

“The synthetic fertilizers are made from petrochemicals and minerals that are shipped and sourced from all over the world,” Beisert told the Boston Herald. “Organic fertilizers are renewable. It’s just a matter of time before organic fertilizers will replace synthetics.”
