Vermicomposting is a good way to compost during winter months when your outdoor compost pile is dormant.

Many people let their compost piles go dormant during the winter months rather than continue to work the pile with little or no new yard material available. However, that does present a problem for composters who compost food waste in their pile.
Vermicomposting, a.k.a. worm composting, is a good alternative for food waste. Worm composting recycles food waste into a rich, dark soil amendment just like you get from your compost pile.
