How were you introduced to vermicomposting?
I learned about vermicomposting through researching animals' impact on the environment. Since I'm a state environmental regulator, I thought I should start a bin at the office, but my supervisor suggested that I do a field study at home first. It is certainly a learning process.
What do your worms like to eat?
lettuce, coffee, NOT bread
What kinds of worms do you have?
red worms
What worm bins do you use?
flip top tub with ventilation tubes

Not bread? Hmm.. i just tried feeding my worms some bread pieces I sprayed with water. I hope the eat it. On the other hand mine didn't seem to like coffee grounds. I was excited when I read about worms liking coffee grounds, but when I tried to give them some they wouldn't really eat it until everything else was gone and even then they would eat it pretty slowly.

State environmental to sound so dumb but just what are you doing up that tree?
Is/was it just for fun or part of your job.
If it was part of your job there are a lot of really funny jokes that would go along as caption to that photo.
I would be very interested also to know what your job entails if you have the time...and can just stop hanging around.

It is nice to hear of someone whose job really makes a difference in our world.
If you like climbing trees with ropes have you tried rock climbing and/or repelling. Both are great sports and quite safe when done right.
Thank you for your reply I really appreciate it.
