Recycling has never been easier and the reward never so great. Master Gardeners agree that composting with worms will produce amazing results and help your plants to thrive!
Why Compost with Worms?
Worm composting, or vermicomposting, is one of the easiest ways to recycle food waste. The composting can be done year-round, indoors, and is ideal for people who live in apartments and may not have the space necessary for traditional composting methods.
Vermiculture is the practice of using worms to crush, compact and break down your organic waste into its most essential nutrient-rich components which creates an all natural fertilizer. If you want to be sure to get composting done right and have rich, dark soil, then vermicomposting is right for you.
Vermicompost is richer in nutrients than the compost from a regular backyard compost pile, and also performs better as a planting medium than a commercial potting mix. The secret is in the worm castings, which are produced from vermicomposting, which holds moisture better than plain soil and prevents nutrients being washed away with the first watering.
