HOW TO – Worm composting


Instructables user amyoungs writes:

Worm composting is an easy way to turn your food waste and shredded paper into rich fertilizer for your plants. You can also feel great about keeping your food waste out of the landfill, where it turns into methane, a stinky greenhouse gas. Worm composting, on the other hand, does not stink – don’t believe me? Try it yourself!

    This is an interesting way to set up a worm composting system.

    I started my kitchen worm box about a month ago, but it’s in a boring (but convenient) plastic file-sized box on a wheeled cart.

    Methane is on odorless gas, and composting food will produce methane as well.

  3. DeanG says:

    But will vegetables decomposing without animal or insect intervention produce a different amount of methane than with worm composting?
