Composting with The Worm Factory 360 (overview and setup)


When I hear the term "worm compost" it brings back memories of a friend who used to use the term "worm dirt" as a way to describe someone less than desirable. Whether you use the term worm compost, worm dirt, worm castings or worm poo, all are referring to the same thing : Vermicompost!

 "Vermicompost is the product or process of composting using various worms, usually red wigglers, white worms, and other earthworms to create a herterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials, and vermicast.  Vermicast, also called worm castings, worm humos or worm manure, is the end-product of the breakdown of organic matter by an earthworm.  These castings have been shown to contain reduced levels of contaminants and a higher saturation of nutrients than do organic materials before vermicomposting.  Containing water-soluble nutrients, vemicompost is an excellent, nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner.  The process of producing vermicompost is called vermicomposting."Wikipedia
