Why You Should Be Composting with Worms

Is your compost pile buried under a foot of snow? Do you dread putting on your snowshoes and trudging out to the pile to dispose of your kitchen scraps? Yeah, me too. That’s why I’m planning to start composting inside, with worms. Yes, worms in the house (shhh, don’t tell my husband).

The greatest thing about vermicomposting or composting with worms is that anyone is able to do it, regardless of how much space they have.

The art of composting with worms is called Vermicomposting and people often do it indoors, though it can be done outdoors when the weather is fair. What’s really great about vermicomposting is that anyone can do it, regardless of how much space they have. Even if you live in a small apartment with no outdoor space, you can set up a worm composting bin in your kitchen and use the black gold compost to help your indoor plants thrive.

There are some great DIYs out there, but a kit is super easy and has you ready-to-go the day it arrives on your doorstep. It just so happens that Eartheasy offers a complete setup.
