Worms consume up to 50 percent of their own body weight in food each day -- that translates into a lot of fertilizer.
Vermicomposting food waste offers several
It reduces household garbage disposal costs;
It produces less odor and attracts fewer pests than putting food wastes into a garbage container;
It saves the water and electricity that kitchen sink garbage disposal units consume;

It requires little space, labor, or maintenance;
It spawns free worms for fishing.
