Vermicomposting is not truly a method of composting. In fact, worms will die if true composting happens, because the heat will kill them. Worm composting is more a method of letting the worms speed the process. A bucket of worms will eat through your waste fast, as long as you feed them right. 

Many different household organic wastes can be used as feed for your worms. Unfortunately, not all waste materials are appropriate.

Nathaniel Hawthorne
"I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation.  It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green."  ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse
