Do you know vermicompost? Both are origin from worms. Worms that we see underneath the soil or can found at your backyard.

I suggest making updates for this topic but I am afraid I could not. By the way I am new into this 'hobby' and I am not an expert yet about vermicomposting. What I've learned from theory so far was transform into real job and as a result I success to produce 15 kilograms of vermicompost the organics fertilizer and used by myself for my backyard and sell to my closed friends to test the affect onto plants.

Basically vermicompost consist of three basic components which are worms (worm itself), bed ('place to sleep') and medium (a combination like kitchen waste). Some people group bed and medium as one term. On this article I am about to share more on vermicomposting.

Worm casting is result of mixing like kitchen waste, newspaper, cardboard, animal manure, all those vegetables and grapes or similar after consume by the thousand of worms inside the bin (1 kilos of worm consist of over thousand worm). One kilograms of worm turn to two kilograms (double population) in one month. Worm egg called cocoon.

Meat, fish, chicken waste etc. are not good for vermicomposting because it was attracted other creatures (i.e. cat, dog) and producing harmful microorganism and bad fungus. Harvesting first (in three weeks respectively) vermicompost by collecting the top level of the bin and leave the worm inside for next round. You can apply the vermicompost by using it onto your garden and see the different. Vermicompost is 100% Organic and very effective in the required adjustment of the P.H of the Soils. It was not harm to any human or even environment. Doing vermicomposting mean we are supporting for green earth and organic life.
