Vermicompost is ” the practice of using worms to break down food scraps. The resulting material is a mix of worm castings and decomposed food scraps,” taken from Google.
I really don’t know a lot about this, but was intrigued when my step mom told me about her worm farm, something she has always wanted to have. I began looking around at this and came across vermicompost. To be honest, I really didn’t know there were different kinds of composting. I just thought, you compost, you compost. Vermicompost is quite neat. There are numerous benefits in this, some are:
*require no extra expenses
* organic fertilization
*fits anywhere since it doesn’t take a lot of space
*there’s no smell
Looking to start your own, here are some great resources I’ve found:

I plan on redoing the way we compost, and I think I may switch over to vermicompost. It would be so beneficial for our garden, since I want to make our soil as nutrient rich as I can. I just need to see if I can continue to use to compost bin we have or if I need to get a new one.
