Worms Eat My Garbage

How to Set Up and Maintain a Worm Composting System, 2nd Ed.

by Mary Appelhof

"You might say that Kalamzoo has become the epicenter of vermiculture (a fancy name for worm composting) since a biologist named Mary Appelhof, who owns Flowerfield Enterprises, started shoveling her own garbage into the voracious little maws of a bunch of red worms and wrote a book about it called Worms Eat My Garbage...

Topics include: bin types, worm species, reproduction, care and feeding of worms, harvesting, and how to make the finished product of potting soil.
