Vermicomposting food waste offers several advantages: It reduces household garbage disposal costs; It produces less odor and attracts fewer pests than putting food wastes into a garbage container; It saves the water and electricity that kitchen sink garbage disposal units consume; It produces a free, high-quality soil amendment (compost); It requires little space, labor, or maintenance; It spawns free worms for fishing.
Using Worm Compost : Vermicompost can be used immediately or can be stored for using it later. The material can be mulched or mixed into the soil in your garden and around your trees and yard plants. Also it can be used as a top dressing on outdoor plants or sprinkled it on lawns as a conditioner. For indoor plants, vermicompost can be mixed with potting medium like soil. A "compost tea" can be made to feed the plants. Simply add two tablespoons of vermicompost to one quart of water and allow it to steep for a day, mixing it occasionally. This compost tea can be used for watering plants to make the nutrients in the soil readily available to them.
