Every seasoned gardener knows that worms are essential to healthy soil, and an increasing number of gardeners are using that scientific fact to their benefit.
By setting up a worm composting system, gardeners can produce super-rich fertilizer, get rid of food waste, and have extra worms, too!
Today’s guest on Off The Grid Radio is Joanne Olszewski, a vermicomposting enthusiast and the co-author of the book Worms Eat My Garbage (Storey), which was originally written by the late Mary Appelhof.
Joanne tells us:
- How to set up a worm composting system.
- What types of worms to use.
- Which foods are a no-no for vermicomposting.
- How to separate the worms from the compost.
- Why it’s the perfect indoor winter gardening activity.
We learned a lot from Joanne, and we think you will, too!
