What is vermicomposting?
Vermicomposting differs from backyard composting. It relies largely on the digestive tracts of composting worms to convert the organic material to a compost-like material known as castings. The castings are very nutrient rich, and when mixed with soil make excellent fertilizer for outdoor and indoor plants. Vermicomposting has some advantages over backyard composting. Worms can be kept indoors and are apartment friendly. Maintained properly, an indoor vermi-composter does not smell.
