Red Wiggler Worms For Vermicomposting
Vermicomposting is an excellent and natural form of recycling food and garden waste and by using worms to turn them into a nutrient-rich material capable of supplying necessary nutrients to help sustain plant growth. Additional benefits include:
- Natural way to dispose of food scraps
- Provides worm castings and worm tea for the plants in your home or office with little or no space or cost
- Re-establish natural worm populations in your flower beds, yard, or gardens
- Provides additional worms to be used as pet food or fishing bait.
Vermicompost (worm castings) helps improve soil structure, texture, and aeration. It also allows excellent drainage in soil so roots are less likely to develop root rot and increases water retention capacity. In addition, vermicomposting requires very little work, is very educational for children, and produces no offensive odors.
Red Wiggler worms are effective for vermicomposting.
Red Wiggler worms are used widely in a number of educational and government-sponsored vermicomposting programs to eat leftover food, garden waste, and paper as part of recycling efforts.
Note: Worms are living creatures with unique needs. Taking worms out of their natural environment and placing them in containers creates a human responsibility. It is important to create and maintain a healthy home for them, and they in return, will provide you with worm castings and worm tea.
