The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that if we composted 100 percent of our food scraps, we could prevent the equivalent of 20 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, the equivalent of more than 3.8 million vehicles’ greenhouse gas emissions. Composting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways you can reduce your household waste and improve your garden, and using worms in your compost bin will provide you with the best compost available. Vermiform composting — the process of using worms to create compost — is one of the most eco-friendly forms of organic lawn care you can use on your vegetable garden or flowerbeds.

Working with Worms: The Complete Guide to Using the Gardener’s Best Friend for Organic Gardening and Composting will tell you everything you need to know to start composting with worms. You will learn what supplies you need, including what bins to purchase, what materials to include in your compost, and where you can purchase your worms. You will learn the conditions to create for your compost bin, what to feed your wigglers, and how often to harvest the castings your worms leave behind.

This book will also help you with problems you may encounter while working with your squirming friends, including what to do with extra worms, how to deal with them escaping from the compost bin, how to tell if they are healthy, and what to do if they are not eating. You will learn the proper way to maintain your vermiform compost and use it in your garden after the composting cycle is complete. This practical guide will offer you solutions and suggestions to keep your garden healthy and happy by including this organic compost material.

Whether you are looking for an environmentally friendly way to enrich your garden or a fun, easy project that your entire family can participate in, Working with Worms will offer you simple ways to use a gardener’s best friend to make your plants prosper.
