Wormeries: Eco-Friendly Composting

The benefits of using a wormery are numerous. For one, they reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the compost produced by wormeries is rich in nutrients and can be used to improve soil structure and fertility, resulting in healthier plants. Using a wormery also reduces the need for chemical fertilisers and pesticides, making it a more sustainable option for gardening.

When setting up a wormery, it’s important to provide the worms with the right environment. This includes keeping the bedding moist, but not too wet, and maintaining a temperature between 15-25C. It’s also essential to feed the worms the right types of food scraps, such as fruit and vegetable scraps, tea leaves, and crushed eggshells. Avoid feeding them meat, dairy products, and oily foods.

Maintaining a wormery is relatively easy. Once set up, all you need to do is add food scraps and bedding, and occasionally harvest the compost. The worms will take care of the rest.

Overall, wormeries are an excellent way to reduce waste and improve your gardening efforts. They are easy to set up and maintain, and the benefits they provide are numerous. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and cost-effective way to compost, a wormery is an excellent option.
