|Worm composting is a great way to get in
on the recycling craze. Worm composting can be done either inside or
outside, so even if you live in a region with changing seasonal weather
you can compost all year round. You only need to put your recyclable
organic waste into the compost with the worms and they will naturally
turn it into rich compost that will be a better fertilizer than anything
that you can buy in a bag at the store.
Worm composting is a great way to turn
your organic waste into fertilizer because worms do this naturally, and
much quicker than other forms of composting. But where can you find
enough worms to have an effect on your compost?
Worm farming is
a great way to get enough of the worms you need for your compost. Worms
reproduce over and over again, so once you begin a worm farm you will
never have a shortage of worms for your compost again. Starting even a
small worm farm is enough to produce thousands of worms over time.
Raising worms is more difficult than just
putting some dirt in a bucket with a few worms and waiting for them to
mass produce. You need to use the right kind of soil, feed them the
right kind of worm food, and make sure that they have the right kind of
environment to live in. The best thing to do is to buy a worm farming
kit to get you started. You can then farm the worms and add them to your
compost as they reproduce, leaving enough worms to continue farming.
Compost worms will do more than just get
rid of organic waste and turn it into fertilizer. They will also till
and aerate your garden once you move the compost into the garden. Youíll
want to be sure that you move some of the compost worms into the garden
with the compost.
You can certainly start your own worm
composting project by getting all of the materials needed. These
materials will include the proper container, bedding, and worms. The
problem is that when you start a worm composting project you cannot be
sure how many of the worms are reproducing and how many of them have
died or been moved into the garden. You will also want a worm farm to
keep up the worm composting over time.
You can purchase a worm
farming kit to help with your worm composting either at a retail
store, if you can find one, or online at a specialty retailer who sells
worm farm kits. You donít need a huge, professional worm farming kit
in order to get started with your worm composting. A smaller kit will be
a sufficient start.
