That's "vermiculture" not "vermin culture"! :-)

I use crumpled newspaper and feed my worms kitchen scraps.  The newspaper
disappears pretty fast.  It's easier to just crumple up a few sheets than
to tear it into strips, which is also recommended.

I feed my worms mostly kitchen scraps.  Newspaper + worms + garbage =
black potting soil pretty rapidly.
