Setting up a Worm Farm - Online


A worm farm is one of the best ways to dispose of food scraps and produce vermi-juice (worm tea) and vermicast (worm castings) for use on the garden.

Learn how to set up a worm farm and the easiest methods to manage and care for these most hard-working of creatures.

This one hour online  workshop will cover both the theory and practice of worm farming in a household setting. It will be useful for those wanting to recycle household food waste in order to produce worm products for use in the improvement of soil in gardens and pot plants.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.
