New to worm composting? Looking for some quick info before jumping in head-first? Well this is will be a great place to get started.
Worm composting (also known as vermicomposting) involves the breakdown of organic wastes via the joint action of worms and microorganisms (although there are often other critters that lend a hand).

Composting is the only the first step in the process of breaking down organic matter. Earthworms finish this process. By feeding on the microrganisms which feed on organic waste, earthworms convert "garbage" into a nutrient rich substance which provides many benefits to plants. Through vermicomposting we contribute to soil preservation and waste reduction.

For eco-restaurateur Dave Krick, it's not just about where his food comes from, but also where it's going.
And in the case of his Red Feather Lounge and Bittercreek Ale House in Boise, Idaho, 45 kilograms of it a day are feeding an extra 200,000 diners - Vermont red wiggler worms that live in the basement, working around the clock to turn kitchen waste into nutrient-rich compost.
