Vermicomposting is creating compost through the use of worms rather than a compost pile although both methods are procedurally the same: organic waste is eaten by nitrogen-fixing bacteria creating compost or, in the case of a worm farm, vermicompost.
And one of the easiest ways to do this is by keeping a worm farm. Listed on this page are two excellent worm farms, The Standard Worm Factory and The Worm Factory 360.
The Standard Worm Factory is the 'tried and true' standard model and The Worm Factory 360 is the next generation worm farm: a 4 tray vermicomposting system with a new thermo-siphon design. Both are available in black, green, and terracotta and both can be expanded to house more worms.
Both worm factories will house thousands of worms, operate odor-free, are easy to assemble and include a built-in leachate collector tray and spigot. Both come with a 10 year warranty on parts and workmanship, a 16 page instructional booklet, a worm bedding kit to help get you started and a "Quick-Tips" lid for easy reference.
In addition to the above, The Worm Factory 360 not only comes with an extra worm tray, it includes an instructional DVD and an accessory kit containing a hand rake, scraper and thermometer, as well. A voucher for a starter colony of 'red wriggler' worms can also be purchased with the worm factory 360.
