Book review: Organic Farming with Worms

Feb 15 2016 0 Comments Tags: biological farming, book, soil, sustainable, worm farm

I've had a compost worm farm for several years now. Actually I currently have three worm farms. They are a little addictive!

When we first talked about getting an aquaponics kit one of my main concerns was how we would feed the fish. I didn't want to be constantly buying fish food. One of the options is to feed worms to the fish, so I've been planning to get a worm farm established. We had planned to make one from an old wheelie bin, but that project has ended up low on the list since we got the new property. Recently a...
