What is vermi-composting?

Vermicomposting, or worm composting, turns kitchen scraps and other green waste into a rich, dark soil that smells like earth and feels like magic. Made of almost pure worm castings, it’s a sort of super compost. Not only is it rich in nutrients but it’s also loaded with the microorganisms that create and maintain healthy soil.

Benefits:

provides nutrients to the soil
increases the soil’s ability to hold nutrients in a plant-available form
improves the soil structure’
improves the aeration and internal drainage of heavy clay soils
increases the water holding ability of sandy soils
provides numerous beneficial bacteria

Because it’s usually made in modest quantities, vermicompost is often used as top or side dressing for one’s most demanding and deserving plants. Mixed with regular compost it adds a boost to garden soil. Blended with potting soil, it invigorates plants growing in containers, outside.
