Description

Techniques and systems for processing food scraps, manure, yard debris, paper, and more

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.

The Worm Farmer’s Handbook details how to recycle various forms of organic material into worm castings or “vermicast,” a much more valuable and biologically-active soil amendment than conventional compost

This very readable book gets into all the details of a commercial operation to include

  • Choosing the right method of vermicomposting
  • Regulatory issues, compliance, and how to build a realistic business plan
  • How to find and manage feedstocks
  • Why pre-composting is important and how to do it
  • The various methods of harvesting, screening, testing, packaging, and storing vermicast
  • Marketing for earthworms and vermicast
  • How to avoid common pitfalls
