Vermicompost is a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner produced through the process of vermicomposting. Vermicomposting involves the use of special earthworms, such as red wigglers, to break down organic materials like kitchen scraps, yard waste, and manure into a dark, crumbly, and humus-rich material. This natural and eco-friendly soil amendment is prized for its ability to improve soil structure, enhance water retention, and provide essential nutrients to plants.
