Here is a bunch of information on Compost Worms, Worm Farms and Compost Piles and how to recycle organic matter and improve your garden soil.
- Did you know that a Compost Worm is both a Boy AND a Girl. Every worm is a Mummy. And every worm is also a Daddy!
- Did you know Compost Worms are different to Earth-working Worms? You can't use worms dug from the garden in your Worm Farm.
- Compost Worms can "eat" anything that was once alive! What you feed your Worms really depends on the size and type of Worm Farm.
It takes 25,000 Compost Worms - about 6 kgs - to "eat" the organic waste from the average family of four. Being a success at worm farming is easier than you think!
Making your own worm farm is easy - here's more information and plans. The most important things to keep in mind are Drainage and Air movement. The liquids have to get out and air has to get in! You can make a worm farm from your old Recycling Crate, a cone-shaped Compost Bin, Tyres, Bathtubs - the possibilities are unlimited! (See photos above).

Getting air in the pile is also important - and easy with a compost Mate tool (see video on our products page).
