Worm farm makes my home more eco friendly

worm farm We’ve been filling our worm farm with vegetable scraps and cardboard paper daily for over 5 years. Natural powerful fertilizer in dark liquid form the worms produce will bring back into beautiful growth also not well looked after herbs. In my view and from my experience, having even a small size worm farm at home is another great step in creating own ecologically friendly home and another move in helping the environment all of us share, in several practical aspects.

Kept under the bush protected from the strong sun running a worm farm is very easy and it doesn’t consume time at all. Rather it creates extra free time. Worm farm isn’t one of those things which need to be kept in mind, these worms know how to occupy themselves. All they need is to throw scraps of veggies in. Then if you enjoy watering your indoors and outdoors plants you can simply use this liquid fertilizer, if it’s being collected into a bottle. It cannot get any better or easier.

These worms are actually pretty smart, they know how to control their population numbers and they do control it constantly. For example if you give them scraps regularly and there is plenty of food they increase they number very fast to manage to cope with all the organic material. On the other hand if there is less or not enough food, or in cold winter months, their number decreases adequately.

The whole worm farms, worms, the high quality soil and liquid fertilizer they produce are totally odorless! That means if you produced enough food for the worms also in winter the farm might be put somewhere accessible inside and be productive. A dark spot in a basement under a staircase would do well I reckon. Here in Queensland in our warm climate these worms survive outside even at night in winter because temperature increases again during the day.

  1. Worms are always a good source of nutritious soil.

  2. This is pretty neat. Most people would really get grossed out by the worms, but if they make a good fertilizer, who cares. Thanks for the great tip and I am going to try this out.

  3. I recently watched a demonstration on worm farming and the couple who gave it stated they keep a mini worm farm under their kitchen sink in a rubber-maid container with drainage holes atop a collector. It beats walking to the compost heap when you’ve just got a few scraps. She did stress the importance of using ‘small’ worms. Thank you for a wonderful website! I’ve really enjoyed it and learned much!

  5. I’ve been working with, feeding my worm farm with vegetable off cuts and still have a difficult time on some things. I would like to gather more information especially on why it sometimes gets like soggy inside, like a moisture in a mud which worms do not like to survive in, that I would really take every step to perfect my worm farm. My estimation on this problem is that organic vegetables and fruits brake too early. Or perhaps, it’s caused by feeding the worms with the pulp which comes as byproduct from juicing. I think the pulp waste is not good for these smaller worm farms boxes.
