Worm Farming

Worm Bin Farming

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 – where you can also purchase a ready-made worm farm – like I did.

Happy Gardening ….with worms!

By Barbara

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

My hubby and I also want to get going on a worm farm. not only for farming but for his fishing. i look forward to getting something going and thanks to your help will be a lot easier.

Hi Heather – I just answered Donna on how wonderful it is to have a farm. Mine is a small one but I get enough worm tea each week (500ml) to use diluted on all my plants. It is great and so clean and NO smells!

I was just telling my husband, the reluctant garden helper, that I wanted to have a worm farm…he rolled his eyes and we are still in discussions but it will happen eventually…love this

Hi Donna, it is a wonderful add on to your organic feeding. I use the worm tea for foliage spray and I love the fact that I am directly feeding them with my kitchen scraps. I’m a big veggie eater, so all the peels go to them! They love wet newspaper too, and the beauty of it is that there is no smell what so ever!!
