Thankyou for taking the time to look at my book. Are you tired of hearing about the awful effects of chemical-based fertilizer on your local environment? If so, would you like to find another way? Well, your search is over! The best way to avoid the hassles of chemical fertilizers is to make your own organic fertilizer at home - all you need is a worm bin. Worm composting (or vermicomposting/vermiculture) is the practice of using worms to break down kitchen scraps, and to turn those scraps into nutrient-rich garden compost. It is an ecologically sound way to eat healthier foods, throw away less waste and spend less money. I have written this step by step guide on worm composting for all of those who are tired of gardening with harmful chemicals. In its pages, you will find out how many worms you need and what kind. You will also find out how to obtain and maintain your worm bin. What bedding will your worms like? How do you make that bedding? What foods can your worms eat? What foods are hazardous to them? How do you keep pests out of your worm bin? The answers to all of those questions and more will be revealed. Most importantly, my book will tell you when and how to harvest your compost for use in the garden. You'll be amazed at all of the benefits that vermicomposting can offer, whether you're dealing with seeds, seedlings or full-sized garden plants. This easy to read, beginners book, summarizes the essential information I have learned over the years, and is written to help you integrate worm composting in to your daily routine. Best wishes, Frank

With its focus on how to make money raising earthworms, this book is a welcome source of up-to-date information on the business of vermiculture. Bogdanov puts vermiculture into a historical context, gives basic information about composting worms, tells how to get started, and describes how to set up commercial beds. He covers pests and predators, harvesting, and packaging and shipping. This book is a must for anyone wanting to go into the worm business, Mary Appelhof, Worms Eat My Garbage, 2 nd ed., 1997 Commercial Vermiculture looks at the opportunities available for joining a true growth industry in vermiculture. The author takes readers through a journey that starts with a look at current efforts in converting tons of organic waste into vermicompost, a high-grade soil amendment. Some landfill diversion sites in California utilize thousands of pounds of redworms to process a variety of organic residues, including yard debris, bio-solids, and the biodegradable fraction of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). While California's climate allows nearly year-round vermicomposting to occur in outdoor windrows, in-vessel systems are in use in other parts of the country to control key process variables. The emphasis of large vermicomposting sites is upon processing organic waste and production of worm castings for sale. Due to frequent harvesting, worm populations remain fairly steady. In order to start or even expand a vermicomposting operation, redworms are purchased from vermiculture sites, where the emphasis is upon breeding earthworms. Vermiculture operations (worm farms) may not be able to supply the thousands of pounds needed for a large vermicomposting facility. Frequently asked questions about earthworms are answered in the second chapter, covering such topics as how much do worms eat and how fast will a worm population multiply. In Getting Started, the author offers suggestions for small, medium and large-size operations. Wooden and concrete bins, pits, and heated, insulated bins are covered. Chapter Four, Monitoring Conditions in Worm Beds, looks at temperature, moisture, soil pH, and aerobicity. Earthworm feedstocks, including how to find sources of free feedstocks, are discussed in the fifth chapter. Other chapters in the book cover essential information for preparing worms to be shipped to customers. What is the value of worm castings? A series of quotations from various authorities on the subject of castings is presented in Chapter Nine. In Earthworms: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, the author provides a brief history of the practice of vermiculture, including an inside look at what happened to a million-dollar-a-year worm growing business from the 1970s. The final chapters of this book offer a variety of things that can be done to maximize success and suggest 20 ways to profit in vermiculture in addition to selling worms.

Co-edited by international earthworm expert Clive A. Edwards, Vermiculture Technology: Earthworms, Organic Wastes, and Environmental Management is the first international, comprehensive, and definitive work on how earthworms and microorganisms interact to break down organic wastes on a commercial basis. Many books cover the importance of composting for reducing the amount of organic wastes in landfills. This reference focuses on innovative vermiculture technology that turns organic waste into a value-added environmentally friendly products that can improve soil fertility and productivity on a large scale. Chronicles more than two decades of growth and changes in earthworm composting technology Based on the work of an outstanding international cast of scientists, the book explores the dramatic growth and changes in vermiculture technology since 1988 and assesses advances made in government-funded projects in the United States and United Kingdom. The contributors discuss outdoor and indoor windrows, container systems, wedge systems, and low labor-requirement, fully-automated continuous flow vermicomposting reactor systems that can process more than 1000 tons of organic wastes per reactor per annum. They also highlight the science and biology behind the use and efficacy of vermicomposting, examine its importance to developing countries, and detail the technology of the past, present, and future. Although the development of a range of vermicomposting technologies has been rapid and the spread of vermicomposting dramatic, the scientific literature remains scattered throughout a range of journals, newsletters, and online resources. As a compilation of information designed specifically to have an extended shelf life, this volume chronicles how vermiculture can be brought into full commercial and industrial development and find application in integrated waste management systems.
