Worm farms are a fun and effective way of turning your kitchen waste into wonderfully rich compost. You can buy a ready made worm farm or build a simple one of your own. Red wriggler worms are the recommended type to use as they are able to eat up to half their body weight per day and will rapidly munch their way through most of your organic kitchen waste.
Red wrigglers create two products for your garden. Vermicompost is a rich 100% organic compost filled with wonderful micro-nutrients. Worm tea is a fantastic liquid compost that can be used when watering or as a pest-repelling spray.
