PLASTIC BUCKET WITH BASE CUT OUT wholes (50cent piece size)
Beautiful terracotta lids for free range worm farms
Free Range Worm farm is the best system that I have found for compost. There is no fuss with turning the compost or moving it within my garden.
The worms do all the work.
I have now 8 worm farms through out my garden. The kitchen waste is recycled faster then in a compost bin.
It you go to YouTube (Inga’s free range worm farm). There are many different methods explained. I found Inga’s the best.
I also discovered that if you dig a bucket in, the worms come all by themselves; there is no need to buy special worms.
The garden worms need no special bedding, as this is their natural environment:
If you build a farm the worms will come!
It is always best to look at your own garden to adapt this system to suit your garden. The instruction when I first learned about this system I found, didn’t suit my garden, e.g.: I found that just a 10 litre bucket was deep enough for my garden, as any deeper was just digging into sandstone. (Instructions attached below)
The only problem I found was the white bucket looked horrible in my garden so I have made terracotta lids, which blend into the garden beds nicely.
The lid protects the worms also from sunlight.
