First self-published in 1982 Worms Eat My Garbage became a classic. Updated in 1995 by Mary Appelhof the book continued to be the landmark book for how to start composting with worms. In 2017 Joanne Olszewski updated the book to reflect the current world of vermicomposting and with the help of Storey Publishing continued to provide the basic information for anyone to start composting with worms.
