The Boxwood Vermicomposting System

Via Scoop.itPermaculture Design Review

There is no better example of integrating efficiencies than the vermicomposting bin. Using earthworms as our allies, we can practice responsible management of manures (from either our own livestock or that of neighbors), turning what is otherwise repellent and a potential vector for disease or parasites into “black gold” for garden fertility applications. But we can pluck one more benefit from this magic trick: We can harvest worms from a vermicomposting bin as nutrient-dense feed of the highest quality for our flocks.
