This infographic provides a diagram to show the process of composting, from trash to plants. The reason vermicomposting is becoming popular is because worms are very efficient eating machines. If you look online you will notice a bunch of different companies selling their own version of a worm bin, however If you look around your house you may be able to make one yourself for next to nothing.
6.)Place bedding at bottom of container with holes( I used a cocoa mix, cardboard clipping work fine as well. If you get this far, keep adding your worm food daily and wait at least three months for your worms to their thing.
An application of compost tea will add life to your soil with beneficial micro organisms that will fight disease and pests, as well as, boost your plants growth. Many assume that worm tea is simply made by collecting the liquid that drains out the bottom of a worm bin (if it has drainage, that is), but this isn’t really the case.In actuality that liquid is referred to as leachate, and definitely isn’t nearly as good as real worm compost tea. Hello, Kudos for this post Its such a easy way to get nice organic soil for your pnlats .
Vermicomposting is a quick, efficient way to convert kitchen scraps into a rich soil amendment using earthworms.
The best types of worms for vermicomposting are red wigglers (Eisenia fetida) and redworms (Lumbricus rubellus). Worms and vermicomposting bins don’t smell, so you can keep worms indoors year round.
Did you know that according to studies conducted by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, worms are very efficient eating machines and can eat over half their body weight in organic matter per day.
The organic matter produced by vermicompost can hold up to nine times its own weight in water. With utilizing worm you can help to speed up the composting process because the worms will eat and process the organic waste much faster than allowing micro-organisms to do all the work alone.


I am so excited as I will be starting my first vermicomposting container this week!  I will share the process with you next Friday so be sure to check back! Dear User, Please use the drop downs below to locate your city by first selecting the country and then the state. Now that its outside and in the open, there is more water being introduced which helps keep it from drying out like it did in our basement. Please download the latest version of the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Windows Internet Explorer browser. The “end” product, called castings, is full of beneficial microbes and nutrients, and makes a great plant fertilizer.
Lay bricks on their side, this is to give the top container space to let the worm tea drip out. One you get a good batch of Humus, let me know and I will tell you how to seperate the worms from the humus so that you can add it to your garden or turn some into worm tea. The problem with leachate is that it can contain all sorts of compounds produced in partially composted or anaerobic waste materials – some of these can actually be phytotoxic – that is to say they can harm or kill plants.
Vermicompost worms break down organic matter, such as kitchen scraps, into waste products called castings. These two species make great worms for the compost bin because they prefer a compost environment to plain soil, and they are very easy to keep.
It’s a great way to use up your kitchen scraps and the kids will enjoy helping out with the worm farm. On the other hand, worms have the ability to eat through a massive amount of waste in much less time. This would make a huge difference in the need to water your plants.  The water is held at an organic level so tends to evaporate slower while still being available to nourish the plants. Although a lot depends on the conditions, what type of worms you use, initial bedding used and what you are feeding the worms, it takes approximately three months to transform organic wastes into vermicompost.  Other than setting up your vermicompost container, you will simple need to feed your worms and let them do the work.


Vermicompost tea is useful as a prophylactic against pests and diseases, for pest repelling and as a foliar spray.

So, vermicomposting is the practice of using worms to make compost simply by feeding them your food waste. If you dilute the leachate with aged water and aerate it for 24 hours or so, it should be fine. It was a gr8 idea and i know even today my mom has this pit behind our backyard for vermiculture .
If you choose the right vermicomposting worm types and feed them regularly (about one-half pound of food scraps per pound of worms per day), you’ll have a steady supply of vermicompost for your garden. A by-product of vermicomposting called vermiwash (which can be collected if there is a tap at the base of the vermicompost tank) also serves the same purpose. Vermicompost is richer in essential plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium than traditional compost. This compost can then be added to your garden to greatly enrich your soil and add great nutritional benefits. Vermicomposting is also known for our innovative product vermiacclerator, which is not manufactured by any other company.
