Worms are the topic on Digging in the Dirt: Kevin Gallagher’s guest today is Rhonda Sherman. Rhonda is a soiled waste specialist in the Department of Horticultural Science at NC State University, and is considered one of the leading authorities on vermicomposting. She was formerly a member of the Board of Directors of the U.S. Composting Council and a contributing editor to BioCycle Journal of Composting and Organics Recycling. Rhonda has a two-acre Compost Learning Lab at The Lake Wheeler Road Field Laboratory. The Compost Learning Lab has, among other things, a 40 x 30-ft building referred to as the Worm Barn. “To say Rhonda knows a lot about worm poop would be an understatement.”
