Worms Eat My Garbage

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

by Mary Appelhof


"Mary makes works work with waste, and makes it fun. Now after a quarter of a century, others can continue to share her passion for earthworms and the environment, with this timely revision of the 'classic' Worms Eat My Garbage."

John Buckerfield, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization

"No one in this country has done more for the self-image of worms than Mary Appelhof, the undisputed and nationally recognized 'Worm Woman,'... [Her book] supplies everything you want to know about worm composting but didn't know where to ask."

Green Living Magazine

"In future years millions of people (and billions of worms) will thank [Mary Appelhof] for showing us all how we can eat better food by growing gardens with wormpower."

Peter Seeger, folksinger and environmental activist

"Appelhof's book is a quick read with a light-hearted approach that makes vermicomposting... sound easy, cheap, and surprisingly tidy."

Nancy Szerlag, The Detroit News

"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... [a] classic."

Anne Raver, The New York Times
