Composting: The decomposition process of biodegradable organic matter which produces a nutrient rich soil amendment for your garden. Compost acts as an absorbant growing medium that holds moisture and soluble minerals providing nutrients that help plants and vegetables flurish. Composting can be done in heaps or in composting buckets with the help of red wiggler composting worms.

Home Compost Bin:
Creating worm compost in a home compost bin with Red Wiggler worms is a simple process. We typically peel our fruits and vegetables prior to eating them, discarding the peels which contain the highest amount of nutrients. By feeding these scraps to the Red Wiggler worms, worm composting recycles them and lets us use the bi-product to grow more fruits and vegetables.
