Vermicomposting and Vermiculture

African Night Crawler
African Night Crawler (Eudrilus eugeniae). The most commonly used earthworm for Vermiculture in the Philipines.

Vermiculture is a more "organic" way of producing fertilizer from readily available agricultural wastes in the farm and organic households refuse. These organic wastes are chopped and mixed with dried manure (especially from rumminants, like cows, carabaos, goats, sheeps, etc.) or from other animals, except dogs and cats (more on this later); and most important earthworms.

The final product from the "Vermicomposting" is "Vermicast", an organic fertilizer rich in nitrogen, and other nutrients that are found in the organic wastes used in the vermicomposting. The selected videos below provide useful guidelines on how to setup your own Vermicomposting and Vermiculture quite simply and easily depending on your available resources, funds and space, as well as what you plan to do with the vermicompost produced.
