Start A Vermicomposting Bin!

Build a vermicomposting binIf you have a small area in your garage or basement you can easily start a vermicomposting bin. Vermicompost is the process of composting using worms to create a vermicast (worm manure). The castings left over from the vermicompost contain less contaminants and higher levels of beneficial nutrients than regular compost.

These vermicomposting bins do not take up a lot of space and do not have a foul smell. There are multiple ways of building them on the Internet or you can purchase one. You can even purchase the worms on the Internet.

We like to compost our vegetable scraps, eggshells, rotten fruit, tea and coffee grounds, shredded paper and general yard waste. There are endless articles and videos on the Internet to help you along the way to create your own vermicompost for the garden. You can also make a compost tea and use this to fertilize your plants organically.
