It’s a garbage disposal that gives back—literally. Worm composting—technically vermicomposting—is a system for turning your food waste into rich, usable soil for use in your garden... all with the help of worms.
You simply bury your excess kitchen waste in the worm bin, and the worms get to work on turning it into soil. Technically it is the worm casts—what worms excrete—that you want....worm casts are full of rich micro-nutrients for your plants.
