I have setup an automated online newspaper that aggregates trending posts form various social networking websites on the subject of worm farming and organic gardening.

Red Worm Composting

If you are into worm farming, you cannot go passed this excellent blog from Bentley Christie aka "The Compost Guy". This blog is a reference and you will learn so much from all the blog posts Bentley has written. Bentley is also the founder of the Worm Farming Alliance, website dedicated to helping people start up and promote a vermicomposting (or similar) business.

Facebook group

8000+ members at the time of writing of this page. The group has been created by Bentley Christie (see above). Great place to find info and help about composting with Red Wigglers but also other types of compost worms and various vermicomposting systems.
