I live in an apartment. Can I still compost?
Easy Answer: Yup. Especially if you’re willing to make nice with worms.
For all of you with the dream of composting but without access to an outdoor compost pile–fret not. With a plastic bin, some worms, and a little work, you can turn your kitchen scraps into soil with the best of them.
It’s called vermicompost..
WARNING: Make sure you keep your worm bin well sealed. My colleague heard a story about a friends whose worms escaped and met untimely ends all over the floor.
