Staff Pick

Composting is a dirty job, but if you've ever tried growing something without the aid of all that nutrient-rich organic matter, you know it's a necessary one.  Thankfully, there exists in nature a creature who actually enjoys wading through your kitchen scraps... and makes a mean compost in the process!  In Worms Eat My Garbage, Mary Appelhof demystifies the vermicomposting process, equipping readers with all the tools they need to make and maintain their very own worm bin.
