'Tis the Season for Vermicomposting!

Red Wiggler Earthworms

Looking for an interesting winter project and a way to get rid of the vegetable and fruit scraps left over from your holiday meal preparations? Want a free source of natural fertilizer for your plants? Like the idea of cohabiting with earthworms? Then vermicomposting is just what you need!

Vermicomposting takes up little space and can be done indoors or out. To get started you just need to know a little about the basic supplies and procedures for keeping a worm bin.
