Improving composting with worms and additives

Picture copyright Barthod et al.

Composting and vermicomposting are sustainable strategies for recycling organic wastes and producing organic amendments. Scientists Barthod et al. suggest that the presence of worms in combination with additives significantly improves the composting process. Co-composting strategies need to be locally optimized, involving the generated amendments in a circular economy suitable to improve sustainability of agricultural systems.

  1. I was unaware that you could add worms to compost, due to the heat a pile of compost generates as it breaks down. Does this not harm the little guys? I would be interested in the technique you can use to combine the two.
