The main difference between vermicomposting (a.k.a. composting with worms) and ordinary composting is speed. Worms cause the processing time to be cut in half. Worms create air and eat the composting material. The other big difference is temperature. Composting is HOT. Vermicomposting is cooler, worms should be shaded to keep them at the right temperature.
What Do Worms Eat?
Worms love to eat fruits, vegetables, and coffee grounds!!!
Worms love to eat (presoaked) cardboard, newspaper, hair, and dryer lint!!
Worms love to eat (presoaked) dead leaves, used tea leaves, and dried grass!
Cut Food and Presoaked paper in blender/food processor for the fastest compost ever. Worms Can Eat Tiny moist pieces Fast.
