What is Worm Composting?  

Worm composting (or vermicomposting) utilises special composting worms to turn kitchen waste into compost and liquid feed for your garden.  The worms and kitchen waste are put in a container know as a wormery, wormeries are much smaller than conventional compost heaps or bins and can be kept by the back door of your house for convenience.  The compost produced from worm composting is very different to conventional compost, it is great for boosting lawns or spreading on flowerbeds.
