I have always wanted to start a worm farm – ever since I saw the first worm farm bins at the Organics Expo 2 years ago. I do, however, find that R800+ is a bit steep for the initial set up. I have a good friend of mine (actually one of my authors) that started up a worm farm business called Worm Wisdom.
Worm farming as a hobby will not only produce excellent compost for your garden but it is also therapeutic and fun! It is an easy system to set up and the costs involved are minimal. The main advantage of worm farming is that the worms will break down your organic waste quicker than traditional methods of composting.
To start up a Worm Farm, follow the instructions on the Worm Wisdom website – www.wormwisdom.co.za where you can also purchase a ready-made worm farm – like I did.
Happy Gardening ….with worms!
