WORM FARMING - Getting Started
  • Choose a site which is sheltered from sun, wind and rain. Carports or sheltered porches are ideal.
  • Use a layer of bedding first – eg, hay/ coconut fibre/ shredded cardboard/paper.
  • Bedding should be damp and porous.
  • Food can then be added. You can cover food scraps with damp newspaper or cardboard to limit flies and odour. Worms eat about their own weight every day: 250g of worms will eat about 250g of waste.
  • Worms need air but not light (worms are photophobic).
