Is this vermi compost ?

Asked May 4, 2020, 12:07 PM EDT

Hello I'd like to know if the attached photo is vermicompost. I have a compost bin in my backyard. It's never been full enough for hot composting. I did notice the bin is full of red wigglers... I looked up some info online about vermiculture & think what I have is vermicompost. I would be great if you can verify this for me. Thanks

For compost piles in contact with the ground, red wriggler worms will move in if the pile is not hot composted or after hot composting is finished.

So yes, you have some good looking vermicompost that is ready to be used in your garden.

Good luck.
