Composting your kitchen waste is an easy way to cut down on the amount of garbage that your home produces, and is one way to start living more sustainably.
And the best part? You end up with a fantastic soil amendment which provides everything your plants need to grow happy and healthy Worm composting is using worms to recycle food scraps and other organic material into a valuable soil amendment called vermicompost, or worm compost. Worms eat food scraps, which become compost as they pass through the worm’s body. Compost exits the worm through its’ tail end.
This compost can then be used to grow plants. To understand why vermicompost is good for plants, remember that the worms are eating nutrient-rich fruit and vegetable scraps, and turning them into nutrient-rich compost. You should use red worms or red wigglers in the worm bin. The scientific name for the two commonly used red worms are Eisenia foetida and Lumbricus rubellus.
