Everything You Need to Know about Vermiculture

Record #:
The particular type of worm discussed, compost, can create compost through a process known as vermiculture. Encouraging gardeners to keep organic waste from landfills is its five benefits: increasing water holding capacity and porosity; improving texture; reducing erosion; and impact on plant growth and yields. Additional incentive to engage in vermiculture is this EPA’s statistic: between 55-65% of residential waste is thrown away, much of which is organic.
