My friend Rhonda Sherman provides the framework for aspiring commercial-scale vermicomposters and worm farmers in this wonderful book aimed at mid-to-large scale vermiculture operations.

Read My Book Review!

  • Choosing the right method of vermicomposting
  • Regulatory issues, compliance, and how to build a realistic business plan
