Worms Eat My Garbage: How to Set Up & Maintain a Worm Composting System is a book by Mary Appelhof self-published under the company name Flower Press. The book gives instruction for vermicomposting (also called worm composting). It explains how to build, or where to buy, a bin for worm composting, each of the steps of converting garbage into fertilizer, and the uses of that fertilizer when the worms are finished with it. It is illustrated in an informal style. It gives direction for the use of worm composting at home or in the classroom. The book's level is grade 5 through adult.

In 2017 Joanne Olszewski updated the book for a 35th anniversary edition. In addition to Appelhof's work the new book contains information on invasive species and changes in recycling over the last two decades.

Mary Appelhof was considered a pioneer in vermicomposting. She died on May 4, 2005.
