Worm farms are fantastic. Tiger worms can eat their body weight in food each day !!
They are great for digesting biodegradable household waste into compost fast and without smells :)
My wormfarm cost me nothing to build, I used old tyres(a waste resource) and stuff lying around at home(sacking, and a piece of wood for the lid).
Here are a few photo's of my worm farm, and a few links on how to make your worm farm....
You can see how close my wormfarm is to both our house and the neighbors, there is absolutely no smell :)
here we are "servicing" the farm, rotating the layers and removing the fresh new compost :)
The bottom tyre is removed, the worms and the compost separated by placing into a heap and as the worms "swim" inwards away from the light you can simply remove the fresh new compost.
The now empty tyre is re-packed with damp newspaper, and placed on top of the pile, and the worms are re-introduced.
It's so easy, if ya want more info, please follow the following link, or if you live in christchurch and want to buy worms or come and have a look, send me an e-mail.
A great source of information
