Worm Farms

How to establish a Worm Farm

There are two styles of worm farm that we recommended: The Hungry Bin Worm Farm and Tumbleweed's series of portable wormeries.

Getting Started:

  • Seek permission from your department and acquire a small benchtop receptacle for your food waste.
  • Put up easy-to-read signage indicating what types of kitchen waste can and can't be put into the bins. These can be downloaded from our resources page.
  • Set up a roster of people to look after it.
  • The worm farm needs very little ongoing maintenance, just a stir with a trowel once a week and the castings and liquid waste removed periodically.
