Red Wigglers, Worm Farm for Compost

worm foodA great way to make compost or seed starter. Nathan from http://stpete.locallygrown.net explains how to start a worm farm and care for the worms. The worms feed on stuff that you would normally just throw in the garbage.

Red wigglers are really easy to care for.

  • Keep them moist at all times
  • Keep them in a dark place
  • Feed them kitchen scraps, junk mail, paper and coffee grounds.

You can go to your local coffee shop and they often have a bunch of coffee grounds that they are willing to give you.

These worms multiply like rabbits. All you need is a small handful of them to start out and in no time you will have a whole bunch.

They will make compost for you that you can use for seed starters or to supplement your plants.
