Smell Like Dirt

In Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood

Global Worming

I’ve got a dirty little secret! Actually a bunch of them. I have worms. I’m a huge fan of vermicomposting, or using worms to process my kitchen scraps. Its very easy to do and can be done cheaply as well. Its a great way for people who live in apartments or condos who can’t build a compost pile, to recycle their kitchen scraps. Done right, your vermicompost bin will not smell at all. There’s a great book by Mary Appelhof called Worms Eat My Garbage, and she has plans for a coffee table that opens up to a worm composter. Ok, I’m not that nuts, but its proof that you can do it indoors and your guests would never know. Worm poop, or castings, is a great organic fertilizer that helps the plants grow while keeping pests and diseases at bay. I hope you’ll watch the video and be inspired to start your own can-o-worms. Pls feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What a great site. I’ll have to link to you from my blog.
I’m learning how to vermicompost so I can give away kits at Muskogee’s Earth Day Celebration.
Thanks for all the useful and practicla information.

Love the video on Youtube about Santa Fe River in North Florida.
We wanted you to know that we are linking to youtube on videos about our region and that your video is wonderful and we’ll be linking to that video along with some others.
Great Job – you really captured the river’s life
