Tip of the Week:
The art of raising worms is called Vermiculture. Worms take everyday food scraps and waste and turn it into the richest, finest compost/castings imaginable for your gardening and plants. The use of worms can speed up your compost operations and as any good organic gardener will tell you the key to our soil fertility is our ability to supply biomass and compost into our gardens and plants. So give this powerful tool a try in your gardening arsenal. You can find worms in your local classified ads, Craigslist, or even eBay. I have used the Can of Worms bin and it works really well. A well managed worm bin is a lot like a well managed compost bin, you won’t even know it is there. It will take a little practice and time to get the hang of it, but once you do you will love it!
1. Earthworms can’t live in worm bins (they need to tunnel in the soil) so use redworms for your indoor or outdoor worm composting.
2. Redworms are quiet and tireless helpers that can live in bins (indoors or outdoors) and turn your kitchen scraps into odorless compost.
