All About Vermicomposting
Worms are fascinating because of how efficiently they can participate in the recycling process of so much of what humans dispose of as “garbage”. They can eat our scraps of food waste and turn it into extremely nutritious fertilizer.
Through construction, erosion and other actions, we are losing our healthy topsoil in massive amounts. Worm composting along with other forms of composting encourages the replenishing of the soil. By using the castings (worm poop) from the worms as both fertilizer and catalyst for microbial action of the roots of plants, we can also produce much healthier plants.
This talk will give some background to vermicomposting including anatomical facts about worms. It will also cover the reasons why worm castings are healthier and more nutritious for plants and answer questions frequently asked about worm composting.
