The World of Worms
Updated: Jan 2, 2019
While exploring ways to grow herbs, I stumbled upon an online discussion about vermiculuture.
The idea of using worms (special composting worms - not just regular earthworms you find on the sidewalk after a summer rain) was fascinating. It made perfect sense, and was a reflection on how far away society has gotten from natural processes that just work.
The process is as elegant as it is simple. Worms recycle vegetative waste and animal manure into one of the best, all-natural fertilizers available. The lowly worm is nature's unsung recycling hero. They essentially take garbage and turn it into gold for plants.
