Vermaculture or Composting With Worms Videos

Vermiculture or vermacomposting is the cultivation of worms, using food scraps and produce a great soil amendment. Worm castings (worm waste) contain higher levels of
nitrogen than most other organic amendments. Worms are natural soil builders and vermicomposting is a clean and efficient method to recycle otherwise wasted food. 

Why vermicompost?
It reduces the volume added to the landfill. 
It requires little space, and equipment. 
Children love to help and will be amazed at how quickly the worms work. 
It is an indoor gardening project and perfectly suited for apartments or other small homes.
It provides wonder compost for your plants. 

Here are three videos produced by our Jefferson County Master Gardener Video Team showing you exactly how to do this!
