Worm Composting Is Great – Start A Worm Farm

I bet you think it’s hard and time consuming to have a composting system. Not only is composting easy and simple to operate, it’s good for the environment and helps heal the mark you leave on the earth.

Think about it…..when you are composting, you are literally giving back to the earth. Thanks to “living green,” composting systems have come a long way in the last few years. Composting doesn’t have to be stinky and smelly anymore, with flies buzzing all around.

Now there’s Vermicomposting…..

“Vermi” is Latin for worm. Vermicomposting means using worms to turn organic matter, such as fruit and vegetable waste, leaves, manure, coffee grounds, etc., into nutrient rich, water soluble compost. The worms eat these materials and excrete castings which are a perfect fertilizer for plants.
