Worm farming - introduction
Unlike traditional ‘hot’ composting, worm farming, also known as Vermiculture, is a ‘cool’ composting method. It is a relatively fast method as worms and other organisms eat the food scraps you put in. As a worm will eat up to half its body weight a day, an established worm farm can cater to the needs of small and large families depending on the number of worms you have.
As a rule of thumb, you require 1,000 worms (250 grams) of adult worms per household member. As you generally commence with 1,000 worms, you won’t be able to process your entire family’s waste immediately, but there are some tips and tricks you can use to boost your worm population and increase breeding.
