Composting our food scraps is a first step towards saving life on our planet, through awareness and good thinking.
We are a not-for-profit group committed to saving life on our planet through environmental education. By implementing a worm program and curriculum in every school.
Thus altering our thinking on a global scale on our long journey ahead.
Dave Goldberg founded Earth Warriors in 1990 driven by a simple belief: to change the world, we must first bring about a new way of thinking. Dave is a respected nature advocate and educator veteran with decades of experience working with the public sector and public schools across New York City.
His work has been recognized by the United Nations and Isaac Azimov, among others. For many years he served as a nature educator at New York's Botanical Garden for many years and has implemented the Earth Warriors’ composting program in several schools. Where he is fondly known as "The Worm Guy".
We believe children must lead the way taking the first step towards a better world through composting. They will become the nucleus of change, attracting the world's population and altering their thinking .
Composting is the natural process of recycling organic matter, such as vegetables and fruit scraps, into a valuable fertilizer that enriches the soil and plants. This process is aided and completed in 24 hours with the help of red wigglers: the earthworms.
Organizing and coordinating composting programs in schools is that first step. Children and their families develop awareness of nature’s cycles and become effective positive transformers of our current wasteful life style.
This simple process offers an eye-opening experience into the ways by which Mother Earth seeks to renew itself.
We know that giving children a hands-on experience in composting at schools is of high interest to young minds, fun, and educational, as well as a strong catalyst for broader change. Not surprisingly, many adults don't know much about the subject of composting. Even if they recycle. The children will become educators
It only takes $15,000 to fund one Earth Warriors program in one school. Imagine what we could do if everyone pitched in? We can be the nucleus of change.
Join our EarthWake by donating $5 and taking a solemn pledge to find one other person to do the same.
Take a stand!
