Have you heard of vermicomposting or worm composting?
It is a process where Red Wriggler worms turn food waste into a nutrient-rich naturalizer (worm manure!). It's an easy way to turn garbage into a valuable resource.
One of the biggest benefits to vermicomposting is that it can be done INDOORS - perfect for an apartment. It's quick, easy, doesn't smell, produces natural fertilizer, and it can reduce your waste.
About 40% of household waste can be composted, so the extra effort to compost can reduce the waste that ends up in our landfills, significantly!
Ready to get started?!
What you'll need:
1. Red Wriggler Worms
Collect your worm food in a container and feed your worms once or twice a week. To help break down the food as quickly as possible, you can cut the food into small pieces. Storing it in the freezer also helps break it down and reduces any odours from the stored food. Just thaw the food before feeding it to your worms.
To feed your worms, simply bury the food under the bedding and the worm manure/castings.
It's THAT easy!
