At Polar Permaculture, it is very important for us to have locally grown food, but it is also our intention to compost the organic waste we create to create a zero waste system.

We over 10,000 red worms (Eisenia fetida) that we had to get special permission in order to have here on Svalbard.

We use them to compost the organic waste that we create and turn it into fertilizer that can be used outside in our dome.

Gruvelageret is a restaurant in town that relies on us to compost their organic waste because they are not connected to the sewage system. They bring it to us a few time a month and then we compost much of it with our worms, and use it to grow food in our dome during the summer season.
