Please excuse my ignorance, but could someone give me a general overview of the purpose of "worm composting"? I have a neighbor who talks about raising worms and such, and the above descriptions are interesting. Is it environmentally advantageous to do this?

Pee Wee's Pants - worm composting is an excellent way to rapidly compost food wastes. The worms are industrious little workers that eat up all the junk and leave behind the most fertile soil ever "worm castings." The waste product from worms is quite possibly the best fertilizer you can use on your plants. My uncle called it black gold.



Here are some sights I found that might be helpful.

Thanks kristadb I'll start with a pound too. I'm not too worried about the weirdo thing - just kidding - more likely my friends will steal my beautiful fertilizer.

Adding some of the worms to your garden is an excellent way to keep the soil aerated.
