Worms glorious worms home composting with helpful critters

Worm farming uses composting worms such as tiger worms or red worms to eat through a mixture of food scraps, garden waste, waste paper and cardboard to produce worm castings.

Worm farming also produces a liquid fertiliser, known as worm tea. Both the castings and the worm tea are excellent fertilisers and great for the garden.

New Zealanders are thrifty and savvy, and would probably be surprised at the amount of food waste that goes in the bin.
