Worms Eat My Garbage: How to Set Up and Maintain a Worm Composting System

by Mary Appelhof, Joanne Olszewski and Amy Stewart

Vermicomposting—aka using a small bin full of redworms to turn food scraps and other organic matter into compost without necessarily needing an outdoor space—is pretty common today, but it wasn't always. Mary Appelhof believed in the idea, developed standard practices, and spread the movement. This definitive little book tells you everything you need to do to divert trash from the landfill and into the soil, without a huge stinky outdoor pile that gets ransacked by varmints. Worms are amazing, folks!

This is the 35th anniversary edition of the book that brought worm composting to the world! It's expanded and updated and has a foreword by the awesome Amy Stewart.
