    Worm composting, or vermiculture, is done with a type of worms called red wigglers.  These are different than earthworms, and are much smaller, but they are powerhouses for composting.  One type of worm composting system can be set up using shredded, dampened newspaper as bedding, and adding vegetable scraps and red wigglers.  This can even be done indoors in large plastic covered containers.  Here are some great links to get you started.
