Simple to make for about $25
As you may or may not know a worm farm can be a great addition to ya
back yard or grow area as the worm castings are a great source of
nutrience and can be use to make a great seedling soil as SS has showed
us in his Germination Tutorial
and the worm juice that accumulates at the bottom of your worm farm can
be used as a foliar spray once added to some soda water ya plants will
- 1 fully sealed fish box or similar
- 2 Broccoli tubs or similar
- 1 heshen bag
- box of worms from hardware store
- soil (i used half garden soil half potting mix with alittle compost mixed in)
- 1 newspaper or shredded paper if you can get it
1: you can get your containers from most vegy shops and the fish box
most seafood places will have them but they are better to get from a
vegy joint as well as they don't smell or need cleaning out.
2: get the two broccoli tups and punch more drainage holes in the
bottom of it i used a chop stick to do this and worked really well
Step 3: get your heshen bag and cut two pieces from it to fit the bottom of each broccoli tub.
Step 4: get your news paper and rip into small piece and line the bottom of each broccoli tub with it.
Step 5: Now get your soil mix and fill tubs about 3/4 of the way to the top and add half a box of worms to each broccoli tub.
6: in a fairly dark corner place the fish box on the ground and the
stack the other 2 boxes on top of it. The last thing to do is pour
about a litre of water over it put the lid on and ya all done.
to feed: Well worms will eat alot of things and dont forget you
probably wont see them for a few weeks as they will be eating the
newspaper so some other things u can feed them.
- Kitchen vegy scraps peel is great
- Crushed egg shells
- Small amounts of lawn clippings
- Most animal manure
- Grated Cooking Chocolate (i have yet to try this one but another member of OSA told me they love it)
the easiest way to get the juice is to simple lift off the top 2 boxes
and you will see the liquid that has collected in the bottom box simple
give this a mix with a spoon and i use 10-20ml per 500ml of soda water
as a foliar spray.
cheerz all and may all our worms be fat and happy
