Re: Let Worms Compost Your Kitchen Scraps

I am going to say something sacrilegious to many, but PLEASE reconsider earthworms. They aren't the good guys we think of anymore. They are damaging the ecosystem in woods. Look it up. Department of Minnesota Natural Resources is a good place to start understanding this. http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/terrestrialanimals/earthworms/index.html
Yes, they may be giving nutritious castings, but they can eat up the duff (leaves, etc) in the woods so fast that it is disrupting the many systems depending on them like fungi, microorganisms, bacteria, salamanders, many insects, and even plants like trillium.
