How to Make a Worm Farm

worms

What can we do with all our kitchen vegie scraps? Throw them into a compost bin, of course, but even better we could feed them to a multitude of worms who will produce powerful liquid fertiliser and nutrient-rich castings to spread over the garden. Most kids will really enjoy putting together a worm farm with an adult and watching those wiggly worms settle into their new home and then help break down and recycle kitchen scraps including leftovers from their own plates. There are many styles of worm farm commercially available or you can try your hand at making your own.
