Setting Up a Worm Farm (Printable Step-by-Step Guide)


Worm farms, worm compost, and worm castings tea are major buzz words in the gardening community (particularly with the organic gardeners). All the cool kids have them. Why not you? So consider this post your official invitation to the popular table and get ready to make your very own worm farm. Then, watch your garden flourish.


First, you should know that worm farms should not be a costly venture. Use what you have and be creative! Soon, your worms will be happily converting household scraps into liquid (and natural) fertilizer for your herbs, vegetables, and flowers.

To make everything easier, Suzi Franks (of 2Womenon2Acres.com) created printable instructions on building, maintaining, and utilizing your very own worm farm. I’m a huge fan of Suzi’s website which is inspiring, well-written, empowering, and easy to navigate. She faithfully posts her monthly to-do lists, garden updates, and projects which make for both informative and interesting reads.

So, here’s the printable how-to:  Setting Up a Worm Farm

    I was shovelling a pile of dead grass a few weeks ago and while doing that I saw quite a few worms. Each time I saw one, I would take it to my garden. I was doing that back and forth, I’m pretty sure my neighbors thought I had gone mad.ReplyCancel
