My name is Clare Nugent and I do vermicomposting (indoor composting with Red Wiggler worms) presentations to school and groups. My husband created a very simple website that explains a little more of what I do called - www.downtodirt.com.

I've been vermicomposting for 2 years and also sell the Red Wigglers and the bins to compost in. It has been a great experience and a very creative way to recycle your kitchen scraps. Let me know if I can answer any questions.
