Reduce your trash volume and gain valuable nutrient-rich soil. Worm composting is using worms to recycle food scraps and organic material to create a soil amendment called vermicompost. Vermicomposting cuts down on methane production from landfills, thus saving our environment. The process is compact, easy and is free of fertilizer!
