What is Worm composting?
Worm composting is using worms to recycle food waste into a valuable soil amendment called vermicompost, or worm compost. Worms are fed food scraps including raw fruits and vegetables, which become compost as they pass through the worm’s body. Compost exits the worm through its’ tail end. This compost is rich in nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium and great for your houseplants or garden! Red wiggler worms are rapid multipliers and break down compost quickly. Under ideal conditions, they can eat their body weight in food scraps each day.
