Start A Worm Farm

Steps to Start a Worm Farm


This post is linked to Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drumer Boys.

Last week we were lucky enough to be the recipients of  the worm farm from Punky’s Kinder. These are the steps we completed to set it up. They are based on a

Fact Sheet from Clean Up Australia .



Punky and Cuddles rip up newspaper for the bedding.


Wet the newspaper

Wet the newspaper - moist like a wrung out sponge


Add bedding

Add other bedding materials - leaves and straw. Punky thought the worms would like to make a home in the tap head he found


Add the worms

Add the worms


Add food scraps

Add a small amount of food scraps


The Worm Farm

Cover and protect from hot sun and heavy rain

    Oh fun! I’ve been thinking about a worm farm since we saw them at the Easter Show. Enjoy 🙂

    We used to have one before we moved into a smaller place. Really do miss having somewhere to use for compost. Looks like fun, too!

    Oh no…worm farms….. I know this is going to sound hard to believe….but my husband and I have managed to kill TWO worm farms. We didn’t intend to. Apparently they are the easiest things to keep alive too! We are now banned from both worm farms and growing vegetables (seems we were no good at that either). We have to buy weekly from our local growers now (not that, that is a bad thing!) as we are not destined to grown veges….or worms! Good luck kids, Im sure you will do a FAR better job than I!
