Thinking about creating your own compost? You’re not alone. In today’s world, many people who own their own homes or live on properties where they have space to create a compost bin are getting started with composting to reduce their monthly expenses and reduce their carbon footprint on the earth.
The best way to get started with creating your own compost bin is by using earth worms. Thanks to earth worms you can have confidence that your organic waste will be broken down quicker and best of all, you can use the worm castings (excreta) to fertilize the plants in your garden as well.
To start composting right you will first need to build your own compost bin. This can be anything from an old trash can or area of your yard. If you’re going to build your own bin you should make sure that it includes a lid because, earth worms thrive in darkness and moist conditions.
The great things about earth worms is that they are fairly inexpensive and cost between $20 to $30 for 2,000 pounds of earth worms. You can purchase earth worms as most nurseries across the country or buy them online and have your order shipped to your house.
