|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 is a method of composting that uses worms to break down kitchen scraps into a rich, soil like material known as worm castings. 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.
