Description

Why Worms?

Worms can process approximately one third of their body weight in organic waste every 2 to 3 days. It is important to work on the combined weight of the worms rather than number of worms, as the amount of worms per kilogram can vary depending on the size and maturity of the worms.

Examples of organic waste that worms can recycle:

  • Fruit & vegetable scraps – cooked or raw
  • Tea bags and coffee grounds
  • Tissues
  • Vacuum cleaner dust
  • Human and pet hair
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Natural fibers such as cotton and wool
  • Bird seed husks
  • Bio-solids
  • Animal manure (Pet Poo Containers)

In large, well-established worm farms, worms can process citrus, onion, garlic, meat, and dairy. However, worms will not consume seeds, plant roots, or people (while they are still alive!)

The result of all this ingesting, converting and recycling? Worm Poo (Castings) and Worm Wiz (leachate); microbe-enriched plant food to replace your fertilisers!
