Abstract: Vermicomposting uses earthworms and other microorganisms to digest organic wastes, such as kitchen scraps. Vermicomposting is faster than traditional composting methods, requires less space, and creates little odor. Making a “worm bin” stocked with composting worms and feeding them plant scraps from the kitchen and garden is a convenient, low-maintenance waste-processing method usable almost anywhere people live, including urban environments
