The classic guide to vermicomposting, using worms to recycle food waste into nutrient-rich fertilizer for plants, is now revised and updated for today's eco-conscious recyclers and gardeners. For more than three decades, this best-selling guide to the practice of vermicomposting has taught people how to use worms to recycle food waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser for houseplants or gardens. Small-scale, self-contained worm bins can be kept indoors, in a basement or even under the kitchen sink in an apartment, making vermicomposting a great option for city dwellers and anyone who doesn't want or can't have an outdoor compost pile. The fully revised 35th anniversary edition features the original's same friendly tone, with up-to-date information on the entire process, from building or purchasing a bin (readily available at garden supply stores), maintaining the worms, and harvesting the finished compost. AUTHORS: Mary Appelhof (1936-2005) is the author of Worms Eat My Garbage. She was an international authority and lecturer on small-scale vermicomposting whose honors included a National Science Foundation grant and the National Recycling Coalition's Recycler of the Year. For more than 20 years, she researched, developed, and marketed products related to the earthworm. Joanne Olszewski is the author of the 35th Anniversary Edition of Worms Eat My Garbage. A close friend of the book's original author, Mary Appelhof (1936 -2005), Olszewski is a fellow vermi-enthusiast and the owner of Wormwoman Inc., which manufactures and sells the Worm-A-Way worm bin. SELLING POINTS: Best-selling classic guide thoroughly updated Food waste reduction is a major environmental concern Vermicomposting is a viable option for apartment dwellers and anyone with limited outdoor space

Industry Reviews

"Mary Appelhof's prescription for saving the world -- in your own backyard. ... [My own worms] have proven to be surprisingly good pets: clean, industrious, self-sufficient, and always up for the job of devouring compost and enriching the soil." -- Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist

"Mary Appelhof turned complicated science into understandable and usable advice. She's sculpted into my Mount Rushmore of the founders of the organic movement." -- Jeff Lowenfels, author of Teaming with Microbes: The Organic Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web
