Vermicomposting

Compost indoors—with help from worms.

Kitchen scraps can be composted using an unlikely little eating machine—worms! Vermicomposting (or worm bin composting) has become a popular way to recycle most kinds of food matter right in the kitchen or garage. The process is odor-free, quick, and provides a high-grade compost that is great for soil. All you need to get started is a small closed container, a bedding of aged sawdust, leaves or shredded newspaper, a little soil that contains microorganisms, some red worms, and a few helpful hints. If you are interested in a future workshop to learn more, please email vermicomposting.
