S2 E5 How Can I Use A Worm Farm In My Backyard?

Worm Farms Require:

  • A contained space 
  • Specific species
  • Not your garden worms

How Can They Be Used?

  • Vermicompost is different from hot compost
  • Worm castings
  • Place it on top of the garden bed
  • What goes in determines what comes out
    • Shredded paper ~ not bad
    • Cardboard ~ not bad
    • Coffee grounds ~ Pretty good
    • Garden waste ~ perfect
    • Kitchen scraps ~ perfect

 

Is there anything that shouldn’t go in a worm farm?

  • Technically no, but avoid
    • Citrus
    • Meat
    • Bones
