Changing the World, One Worm at a Time.
Akil Mesiwala has a simple yet beautiful stack of cedar boxes in his home that house a most unusual pet. Inside “The Box of Life” he keeps between 1,000 and 2,000 red wiggler earthworms. Although Mesiwala feeds and cares for these pets and thinks of them affectionately, they are working animals. They have a very important job in his home with positive ramifications across the community.
