Composting is a great way to reduce landfill-bound waste and convert it into a nutrient rich amendment for your garden, shrubs or even your house plants. Unfortunately, not everyone has the space to build a bin and do backyard composting. If you live in an apartment, have a small yard or happen to be a school teacher looking for a great “hands on” learning experience for your class, vermicomposting may be just the thing for you!

Vermicomposting uses Red Wriggler worms to convert food waste and organic material into a nutrient-rich natural fertilizer that you can use in many different ways. It is also a fun way to learn about how waste can be turned into a valuable resource. Check out our vermicomposting information for all the information on how to turn your waste into a free fertilizer.
