How Worms Help Us Turn Kitchen Scraps Into Plant Gold!

Worms blog post
Worms create tunnels in soil and eat organic matter which turns into worm castings that is an incredible compost for your plants! These tunnels allow oxygen to get to roots and increase the soil quality. We also have “composting worms” in both our outdoor and indoor worm bins that turn our kitchen scraps into plant gold! Worm “poop” is one of the best fertilizers you can use in your garden, and it also contains growth hormones for plants! Composing worms can be purchased on Amazon, and you can see the video below to learn about how we manage our worm friends!
 

How to Attract or Encourage:

  • First off, make sure that you do not use any pesticides in your garden! This can harm your beneficials as well as your pests.worm-factory
  • Attracting earth worms is easy in your garden. Laying mulch down on soil will encourage moisture in the soil and encourage worms to come.
  • Worms bins are a great way to convert kitchen scraps into plant food!
  • Worms can be purchased on Amazon or sometimes bought at your local nursery. Red wigglers are the best worms for composting.
