Comments On - Free Worms Promote Vermicomposting

This is great! I've actually been using red worms and European nightcrawlers to compost my food scraps in Las Vegas for 3 years now. We hardly have any food garbage at all.

I've been giving them away, trading and selling my worms since I just have so many now. You can see what I have going on at lasvegasworms.com or call me for help or for worms at 6O8-576-9689. :)

Worms are great. They remove all of my kitchen scraps and debris. I send no food waste from the kitchen to the landfill, they get it all.

I puree all the stuff, freeze it in bowls made from the bottom of gallon milk jugs and then feed them one of those worm-sicles every three days. Once it thaws, they swarm the thing and it's gone!

It won't be long before I have enough worms to give away, too.

This is a great idea! How do you get in touch with the worm swap in Baltimore??? In response to the post from the guy in the desert. Composting worms don't do so well in garden soil. They really live in manure or compost. Maybe that is why you can't find them. www.gardeningwormcomposting.com

It's been surprisingly difficult for me to find a worm supplier, so these sorts of exchanges are a great idea. I think I've found a source, and assuming all goes well I will probably offer my surplus worms to some lucky person for free once they're breeding well. Yeah, I decided I didn't make stock nearly often enough to justify holding onto veggie trimmings but you can never have too much compost.

This is such a great topic, especially for the urban farmer! After months of talking about it and doing my research, I just bought 250 red wrigglers! I hope to improve my Georgia soil one worm bin at a time! :)

Lots of places have a simular program, I know Herron Farms in Dawsonville does this also. They even loan people worms to get them started.

It's difficult to maintain a vibrant worm population here in the desert. I find I have to continutally add them to my gardening areas from my worm bin. They either suffer from the heat or dig so deeply I can't find them.

This sounds like a great idea. Too bad there's nothing like that here.
