If Jack Frost and Old Man Winter interfere with your composting, considering indoor composting with the same red wiggler worms that do the dirty work outdoors. Known as vermicomposting, this method isn’t as messy as you think. And, no, the worms don’t escape. They want to stay because they’re warm and well fed. And they’re creating worm castings–some of the richest growing material on the planet.
I reported on vermicomposting for The Denver Post, and my article includes everything you need to know about indoor composting: step-by-step instructions and even a helpful video.
When winter turns your compost pile into a Popsicle, vermicomposting allows you to continue using kitchen scraps and other compostable materials rather than trashing them in the landfill. Price worm castings, and you’ll quickly see the value of vermicomposting. The end result makes your efforts worthwhile not only for the planet, but for your own garden or houseplants.
