The Best Place for Garbage is the best place to learn about composting with earthworms.  Worms can easily turn your organic waste into very valuable fertilizer that you can use to make anything green grow better and stronger.  Use it in your garden, on your lawn, on your houseplants, even to make the green in your wallet grow faster by selling worm compost.  Whether you are new to this wonderful process or you want to expand your expertise, this comprehensive tutorial has it all.  Everything is covered: from indoor and outdoor worm homes, how to feed your worms, what to feed your worms, how to harvest the castings and, most importantly, both how and why to use them. 
What sets this book apart is not the telling of what to do (though that part is pretty darn good!), but you will also learn why you are doing what you are doing.  This makes it easy for you to figure out things on your own once you get going.  There are great trouble-shooting tips and tricks to make sure you never fall victim to a smelly worm bin or worse: dead worms.  There are actually many myths surrounding what worms can and cannot eat and where and how they can or cannot live.  Find out the real truth in The Best Place for Garbage as you learn how these myths came to be and why they really are just urban legends (Yes, worms can eat meat.  And citrus.  And bananas.  No, you do not need to drill holes in your bin. Really!)
Told with a very heavy dose of humor and an even bigger helping of common sense, this book is perfect for anyone who gardens, anyone who recycles, anyone who eats.  It is currently estimated that over a third of all waste is made up of organic matter that can be recycled.  Recycling plastics and such is awesome, but in this case, you can personally make a difference and get something valuable in return.  Try that with a water bottle.
Also includes a bonus section of ideas for school and college level science projects.

From the Back Cover:

This book will only be useful to you if you eat food or if you know someone who does.

About 30% (thirty percent!) of your personal household trash is made up of completely recyclable organic material.  This material:
      -is totally recyclable by you right in your own house or apartment
      -has zero reason to be put in already overflowing landfills and
      -is quite valuable to use or even sell once you recycle it

How in the world can you accomplish such an amazing feat of alchemy? With composting worms, naturally.  Now don't be squeamish, they won't hurt you, promise.

In this fun, funny and informative book, you will find out how to turn your organic household trash into very valuable vermicompost, also known as worm poop!  Not only will you greatly reduce the costs of sending your waste to the landfill, you will get an extremely valuable product in return to use in your garden, on your lawn, on your houseplants or even to fatten your wallet.  All without spending a ton of money or, more importantly, a ton of effort.

Ready to know more? Then let's get started learning how to take your recycling to the next level and get ready to have more than a few laughs along the way...

About the Author:

Sandra (Sandi) Wiese is a small-scale commercial worm composter with one simple dream: that someday “I have worms” will not be met with a cringe and “I hope the doctor can give you something for them!”. In all seriousness, after finding so much misinformation regarding organic recycling in the current literature and all over the interwebs, Sandra had no choice but to write a book about how easy, fun and profitable vermicomposting can be, for both you, and the planet.
