This month the Biscayne Times, owned and operated by former New Times editor Jim Mullin, features an article by Jeff Shimonski, a certified arborist and director of horticulture at Jungle Island, on home composting techniques.
Shimonski uses vermiculture, compost via earthworm, at his own home's vegetable garden. Shimonski writes "I purchased a small vermicomposter and a couple of pounds of earthworms online and got started." Sounds easy right? Vermiculture produces high quality compost from organic materials, even paper and cardboard, though it is unsafe to give your worms "meat and milk products, because of bacterial issues."
The food you throw can help you with the food you grow and those credit card bills can help you make something instead of lose it.
