Meloearth





MELOMED is giving back to the community with its Meloearth initiative. Melomed launched Meloearth, an innovative green project that sees the hospital donate its organic kitchen waste to Ihata – a shelter for abused women and their young children in Heideveld. The first batch of kitchen waste was delivered to the shelter early this month. The kitchen waste is used for the purpose of vermicomposting that produces a vermiculture compost or “worm tea” which is used to fertilise the shelter’s vegetable gardens.

The key to this transformation of the waste are none other than earthworms, and subsequently earthworms for six worm farms have been supplied to Ihata by the Haven Night Shelter. Vermicomposting is a safe and odourless way of processing organic kitchen waste. The liquid and solid fertilisers that are produced by vermicomposting improves soil conditions, and the health of the soil and plants.

The vermiculture worms themselves do not harbour any bacteria or viruses harmful to humans and are also free of all parasites. The project will be overseen by an Ihata representative and, in turn, the vegetables and herbs grown in the shelter’s food gardens will be used to feed the women at the shelter.
