Description

This basic primer takes all the guesswork out of worm composting. It shows readers how to take responsibility for the waste they create by turning food scraps into valuable nutrient-rich compost. Henry Owen demonstrates that worm composting is a year-round activity that is easy, fast, convenient, good for the earth, good for your plants, and fun. Topics include what type of worms to buy, how to construct a bin, how to maintain the right environment, and how to foster a thriving “worm herd.” The sections on worm bin troubleshooting and FAQs cover everything else you need to know.

 

“This book has made the art of worm composting accessible to everyone.”

—Nadine Ford, manager, Little Sugar Creek Community Garden

 

“This book highlights how easy and rewarding vermicomposting can be. I believe that anyone who read this book will feel confident enough to start their very own worm farm.”

—Brian Rosa, owner/consultant, BE New Organic World LLC

Useful Information

Book was useful to me in starting a bin. Author gives lots of options on how to do it at different cost levels. I opted for the inexpensive version of a storage bin with holes drilled into it. If all goes well I’ll upgrade. He reviews a number of commercially sold systems with pros and cons which will be useful.

Exactly as what was promised.

I sent an email expressing my concerns and as of this date, I am still awaiting for a reply. I found the instructions unclear and voiced my concerns.
