Composting is a great way to supply your garden or house plants with nutrientrich soil and reduce your organic food waste. However, if you live in an apartment or want to compost during the winter here in Minnesota, your options are often limited. Vermicomposting, composting using worms, is a great way to compost your organic waste that takes up little space and, because you can do it indoors, provides a year-round option in cold climates. Vermicomposting is also fun and easy to maintain—good worm bins are odorand insect-free even with thousands of worms in them!
