Buy Our VermicompostLet your garden benefit from our super-hero worms
- Vermicompost is what you call the castings that worms leave behind when they digest organic matter. It works absolute wonders as a natural fertilizer and is often used because of its growth stimulating and soil improving effects. It works a bit differently than the manure, compost and gardening soil you might already be using in your garden.

The GreenPlanet Story
The ChallengeThe problem is that we use compost and think because it says “organic” on the packaging it is natural – but few people actually keep in mind how much carbon dioxide was produced with the production of the compost. We keep our garden green, but few people think about the volume of water it actually consumes. We use manure to fertilize our ground, but few people actually know how poisonous this can be to our soil and our ground water.
My VisionThere are dozens of problems I saw and that’s why I wanted to build a company that both helps people to not just grow a blooming garden, but also a sustainable and natural one too. I wanted people to grow TRULY green gardens. Gardens that are eco-friendly and that actually help our environment, and on that day the idea of GreenPlanet Gardening was born. When people use our products they should know that they don’t just do their garden a favour, but the environment and our planet too.
Tips For Going Green
- Recycle & reuse materials
- Save water
- No more chemicals
- Improve your soil
Our Events & Community WorkAs you know, the environment and its sustainability is the number one priority to us. This is exactly why we want to use a specific percentage of our income to make sure we help our environment out. We plan on doing a variety of activities that serve the community at large. These include:
- making our production of compost, vermicompost and all other products that might follow in the future carbon neutral
- reducing our water usage to a minimum
- the distribution of organic material should be Namibia wide
- cleaning up local areas from all non-organic scraps
- supporting community gardens
