What is Worm Composting?

Worm composting (also called Vermicomposting) is a form of composting in which you feed your vegetable food scraps to a specific type of earthworm called red wigglers (scientific name: Eisenia Fetida).

Why Worm Compost?

Because it allows you to responsibly dispose of your kitchen scraps while at the same time creating nutrient-rich compost that you can use on your indoor or outdoor plants. Vermicompost (worm poop) is better for plants than almost any other type of compost and is worth about ten times as much as compost from a pile.

Composting worms have only three jobs: eat, poop, and make babies. Your job is to manage the worms in a way to maximize all three.

    I thought I would update my worm composting. First composting dog poop; that has been going very slow. I have a small bin about 3 quart size with just dog poop and shredded newspaper. the worm are still work it. I have been doing this for about 5 month. I have 2 Worm Factories, they are working great. I do get annoyed when I put banana peels in and I get flies, but they go away after awhile. I have had them for a year now. My other 2 worm composters are some pants I bought from the local thrift store. This has been alot of fun, I put everything in them. I had to empty them recently because the shredded paper was compacted really hard, I have to water them about once a week. In my last 2 composters, I have been doing just coffee grounds and shredded newspaper. Those worm are going like crazy, I think it is all of the caffeine. If you would like pix, just email me and I can send some.
