worm composting at home and in the classroom
Eisenia fetida (red wigglers). One pound of worms composts up to a half a pound of food scraps per day, thereby reducing pressure on our landfills. In a healthy, well balanced environment, the worms will rapidly multiply to consume the available food supply within a few months.
Important!!! These worms will NOT survive in your garden. They are not like our native nightcrawlers and do not live in soil. These are meant for a controlled, indoor vermicomposting system, producing castings to be applied to your garden.
Worm castings (a.k.a. vermicast) is nature's finest organic fertilizer for your garden or indoor container plants. Earthworm castings are the clean and odourless by-product of your home vermicomposting system, and are an excellent source of safe bio-available nutrients for your plants. Perfect medicine for exhausted garden soil.
