Vermicomposting is Cooler than Composting!
The main difference between vermicomposting (a.k.a. composting with worms) and ordinary composting is speed. Worms cause the processing time to be cut in half. Worms create air and eat the composting material. The other big difference is temperature. Composting is HOT. Vermicomposting is cooler, worms should be shaded to keep them at the right temperature.
