After doing several years of deep research on composting worms & then after several years of hands-on experimentation & lots of success, I have come to intimately understand what composting worms like to eat & what they do not like to eat. I created this one-page What To Feed Composting Worms (& what NOT to feed them) document so that my friends, family members, & worm composting clients can print it out & keep it next to their kitchen compost pail so they know what their composting worms will like to eat & what they will not.

The front page includes the "YES! Foods" while the back page includes the "NO! foods" so that the document can be printed out front-and-back on a single page. Some folks like to laminate the page so it lasts longer so that it may also be useful for future guests or new roommates.

Personally, I use two kitchen compost pails: one compost pail for the YES! foods kitchen scraps that go to feeding my worms & the other compost pail for NO! foods kitchen scraps that end up in my other compost systems: keyhole gardens, compost tumblers, bokashi, etc.

Thank you in advance for supporting this work of helping to get more folks composting in my community & around the globe. :-)
