What is AVSA? A Vermicompost Separating Answer!

AVSA is a unique Design and Process, that when used together will produce the long sought after results of removing the vermicompost from the earthworm beds, without a lot of stress on the earthworms or you.....

AVSA is suited to small earthworm growers, as well as the larger growers that produce vermicompost on a regular basis and who wants a simple, easy means of removing their product ( vermicompost) from the earthworms, babies and egg capsules.

AVSA turns the vermicompost into the product to be sold/used and makes the Red Wiggler Earthworms the producers of it, instead of the earthworms being the product being sold...

AVSA may be used individually as a growing bed or used just to separate existing beds.. windrows.

AVSAs separating abilities are based upon the condition of the bedding and the overall growing environment of the earthworms. Since these are what will govern the time it takes the babies to hatch and get into the separation chamber. Since each type of "composting earthworm" is basically the same, this time will vary only in the length of time it takes in your system for the egg capsules to hatch...

By improving these conditions by growing the earthworms in these AVSA units, the vermicompost, as well as the production of earthworms are markedly improved..

AVSA was designed with the "conservation" of floor space as a major factor. It therefore requires only a four foot square of floor space, and holds a conventional 4'x 8'x 2' outdoor bed within that space. By stacking another unit on top of the base unit (if your ceiling allows, over 8') that can be doubled. So, can the money you make per four foot square.

AVSA's design allows multiple, stacked units to be attached side by side to each other in rows, with a minimum of clearance (4') between them. With just enough room to work them.

They easily pay for themselves in the first year and still produce for years thereafter. Even at a very conservative rate of fifty cents ($.50) per lb. wholesale, (the current selling price is upwards to eight dollars ($8.00) per gallon or more, (check it out on the other vermicompost web sites ). There is good money in vermicomposting, especially when it is like any other soil supplement and has to be added just as fertilizer or other amendments do on a regular basis. UPDATE: Check out today's prices on the internet!

The units can be made of Stainless Steel or plywood and are 4'x4x4' for the base unit. 4'x4'x7'6" for stacked.  We also have the Baby AVSA for the beginner or small family. It is 2'X2'X3' and works great for a smaller garden usage.

The plans are for the Stainless Steel, 4'x4'x4' unit/units, but can easily be adapted to be constructed from other similar materials, plywood, etc...but the stainless is preferable, due to its strength and longevity.

There is an easy access in back to feed and water, a large front door for ease of vermicompost removal and a special stress free area for the earthworms to hang-out while your doing the separating. Additional units attach easily to each side.

With the build your own AVSA Plans. Additional suggestions are included for automatic watering, runoff water recovery, ( which is loaded with nutrients and would be ideal for hydroponics) feeding, and general usage.
