Feeding earthworms remains a challenge for many vermicomposting enthusiasts. The ability of earthworms to readily convert organic matter into vermi-fertilizer is heavily dependent on how these materials are prepared prior to feeding. Some organic materials in their fresh state may be slightly toxic or irritate earthworms and cause suppression in earthworm activity, whereas other organic materials may regenerate in the bin and become a nuisance.
Hands-on learning experience
Our beginners’ package takes you through the entire vermicomposting process. The interactive learning atmosphere allows for a very dynamic experience. Your burning questions are always fit for a good discussion as we always seek to help you understand the process in a very practical way.
Your worm farm would need to become familiar with your organic waste materials, therefore we encourage participants to bring along an average representative sample of their weekly collection. Participants are guided on how to prepare, and make the best combination of materials for improved acceptance by earthworms.
A well-prepared worm food should :
1. Be microbially active and rotting,
2. Stimulate earthworm response within a 72 hr period,
3. Have a musky rather than putrid smell
4. Be free of foreign materials and weeds.
