The Truth About Vermicast

Roxanne Doerksen discovered the benefits of worm castings when she was looking for a natural and organic project to do with her kids, since 1998.


Roxanne grew up a farm girl and has a strong connection with the land. Protecting the land by keeping compostable refuse out of the landfill was a 'no-brainer' for her. The added advantage of providing growers with high-quality soil amendment was the added benefit that made Roxanne take the plunge to create T.R.A.D. worm industries. The truth is vermicast products are not just mulch or fertiliser. They provide valuable nutrients in a form that your plants need without any effort required to transform those nutrients into a form the plants can use.

That's why we call it superfood!!

Roxanne Doerksen

CEO, T.R.A.D Worm Industries LTD.

Sometimes life gives us moments of lemony snickets and that is how TRAD Industries LTD was born. When our daughter was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease we were looking for an alternative way to deal with pain and CBD oil seemed to be the answer. After looking into the manufacturing practices, I found that inorganic fertilisers were the standard. We realized that there had to be a more natural way. With some searching, I found that the University of Michigan was doing research into growing mediums and found that worm castings were excellent at amending soil. I was hooked. I have had a worm bed in our house since 1998 as a way to deal with our household compost so now I just needed to scale it up. We managed to do just that, which is where we are today. We are developing technology with Medicine Hat College. Programs to develop new ways to track, recover data, and promote waste stream diversion and utilize this “garbage” so that it is a valuable feedstock for worms. The castings (worm manure) is now a highly regarded soil amendment that brings biology back into the soil. How cool is that! We are so grateful that, out of an awful life circumstance, we have the opportunity to create something wonderful.
