Vermicomposting (worm composting) bin
Vermicomposting (worm composting) is a form of composting in which you feed your veggie food scraps to a specific type of earthworm, red wigglers. Vermicompost (worm poop) is better for plants than almost any other type of compost and is worth about ten times as much as compost from a pile. The worms are kept in a bin (some sort of container, a storage tub works great). The bin is filled with moist bedding which can be made from any carbon source (shredded paper, cardboard, leaves, etc). I use shredded newspaper and it works great. Once a week or so food scraps are buried in the moist bedding so that the worms and invisible microorganisms can eat them.
