Timelapse footage of worms breaking down vegetable scraps into compost, a process called vermicomposting. This sample contains two compost earthworm species (Eisenia fetida and Dendrobaena veneta) and other fauna (mostly potworms, springtails and mites). These soil organisms are feeding on fresh organic kitchen waste (such as used coffee grounds, carrot and potato peels, celery and carrot leaves, and egg shells). This sequence was filmed over 15 days and 15 hours.
