    Today we are going to be discussing worm composting and vermiculture. Using worms to eat your waste organic matter from the kitchen can be a very convenient method of making black gold. Not only do these red wigglers produce a richer soil amendment than traditional compost (higher in nitrogen, phosphorous, and potash), they make it faster than their microbial compost pile counterparts. Worm composting has a number of additional advantages over traditional composting, some of which include:

    • Can be done both indoors and outdoors (depending on temperatures)
    • Takes a fraction of the space as traditional compost piles and is portable
    • Easy to continue composting during the winter without braving the snow or rain
    • Kid-friendly (my 4 year old daughter adds the daily scraps)
    • The compost (worm castings) and compost tea is readily accessible
    • Easy to expand capacity
    • Can be shared with your community and friends

With my compost tea setup and my starts suffering from poor quality soil, I'm in desperate need of a source of high compost. So, I finally ordered some worms and learned how to take care of them. A typical worm farm will not produce massive quantities of compost but it will produce a very high quality compost, and a small amount of good compost can be multiplied in a compost tea brewer.
