The Power of Worms (#510H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

While worms are an important ingredient of the soil, they can steal the show in the compost pile. With vermicompost, worms do all the work of breaking down and decomposing kitchen scraps, turning it into nutrient rich castings from the garden. They take the garbage and turn it into black gold for the garden. This episode explores home vermicomposting, visits a commercial harvesting operation, and tours a "zero waste" company turning warm waste into a multi-million dollar operation as a natural fertilizer alternative.
