To keep your worms happy, you can buy a commercial worm farm, or make one from recycled materials.
Worm farm container
The container needs to be pest proof. It needs to have drainage and air holes. Bedding material can be shredded paper and cardboard (not coloured or glossy), cocofibre, dried leaves, or dried grass clippings.
What they eat
Worms can eat most fruits and vegetables, they really seem to like bananas and melons. Do not feed worms citrus, onions, or garlic. Don’t put meat, bones, or dog and cat poo in the farm.
How much they eat
Composting worms can eat at least half their weight every day. 1000 worms will eat 125g of food scraps. Happy worms can lay enough eggs to double their numbers every 8 weeks.
The farm should be situated in a protected spot, kept between 15C and 25C.
