Composting with earthworms refresher
It's not rocket science, but there are a few important rules to follow if you're going to , number 1, not kill your worms and, number 2, make some great compost.
Containers range from commercially available vermicomposting units to plastic totes you adapt yourself, or home-made wooden bins. Regardless of your choice, the container you use MUST provide aeration.
The following types of bedding are recommended:
- Loam/top soil
- Organic peat moss
- Leaf mold from composting piles
- Shredded cardboard
- Shredded newspaper or computer paper
Provide for your worms what they prefer - cool, moist, low light conditions - and they will happily produce rich, organic fertilizer compost.
