Making & Managing Your Worm Bin

A short how-to guide for the home or classroom vermicompost system.

Worm composting, also known as vermicomposting or vermiculture, is an inexpensive way to acquire an incredibly rich and fertile soil amendment for your garden and house plants. Worms will feed on the bacteria and fungi that are feeding on your food scraps and bedding waste. The worm castings (or worm poop) that they excrete is biologically active, nutrient rich, and contains microbes that are capable of suppressing plant diseases.
