Vermicomposting is great. Red Wigglers are most gardeners choice. Worm castings are fanstasic for growing plants.

This is a very cool idea. Where do you get the worms?

I got mine from www.redwormcomposting.com. VERY fast, friendly service. Great product! Also refer to his website for overwintering them. He does it successfully.

Most of the time you can do a local search for composting  on the web and find them from a dealer.

I have my worm bin inside all the time. Worms grow faster and I'm more incline to put scraps into it. Theres no smell.

I listened to a broadcast on NPR that talks about red worm composting in-doors in the winter.
