Found great composting resource

Hey All

I found a great composting resource on the web. Even though it deals with vermicomposting only in passing, it has great advice on how to create and maintain your composting system(s).

I have learned a lot by just browsing. Just imagine the stuff I could learn if I actually studied it ;-)

I found a great vermicomposting website. Vcompost.com. I started a bin using the information and I can't believe the results. I used it to top dress my yard like it said on the site and my lawn is now thick and dense, when before I had bare spots. It is also a lot easier to maintain the bin, since you don't have to turn it over. It also produces the vermicompost which is much higher in nutrients than compost. Also I keep mine in my garage, so I don't have to go outdoors, which is really nice in the winter.

Orgarden - You are incredible. All your posts since you recently registered give the same message. STOP mongering these forums promoting your commercial enterprise website.

ogarden,

Vcompost.com is almost entirely useless. All it tells you is how to build a bin. 1000 other sites tell you to build the same thing. None of the other links work.
