Start a Worm Farm to Dispose of your Food Scraps, 176°

Make (there are plenty of resources on the internet to tell you how) or buy a worm farm and get those worms to work on your food scraps. The waste products (vermicast and 'worm tea') make great fertiliser for your garden.

Its a great way to give your seeds and plants a little kick start this spring. The worm poop is great fertilizer.

Typical wormery worms are not your typical garden worms and will die if put in your garden.
These folks have great information and resources for vermiculture.

You can even order the worms through the mail. I made my own wormery but I ordered the worms, ph balancer and worm treats from them almost 2 years ago and my worms are still going strong.

Been doing this for a couple of years now. The worm compost goes onto our vege garden :-)
I understand we are a bit lucky here in New Zealand as we have a large back yard... but even people in crowded cities could maybe find a spot for a mini-garden on a balkony which get's fed by worm castings. It is interesting to hear that apparently all humus on earth is created by worms...

This is going really well, I extended this to see how it scales for a small business--

It's so easy and no more smelly rubbish bins. Just need to find a way of disposing of animal waste. Maybe some kind of liquidiser and then dry it out?

Been doing this for about 8 years, castings go right into the veggie gardens. Twice a year I harvest worms and start up friends with them.

I've had my worm bin going for about 10 years now - still with descendants of my original worms! I also give them away to other people who are setting up their own backyard wormeries. Most satisfying to help others get started.

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
