The article reports that worms are being used by Saginaw Valley State University in University Center, Michigan, to dispose of food waste. Since January 2008, the university's Dining Services has been collecting its pre-consumer food waste and sending it to the university's two greenhouses, where worms feast on the waste and turn it into fertilizer. The next step for Dining Services is to grow herbs in the greenhouse.
