Worm farm presentation

This free drop in presentation will tell you about how worm tea can be used on your garden as fertiliser, how to use the finished compost / castings and how you can make your own worm farm at home with the family to get started being more green! Worm farming is an easy way to compost your kitchen waste and they are great for unit dwellers, singles or for small families. A worm farm can be kept in any sized backyard, or even on a tiled balcony. If there is enough, you’ll also get to take away a bottle of worm tea to use on your garden at home.
