To help set up a worm farm we are selling a booklet explaining how to build different worm farms and how to maintain them. The booklet can be bought as hard copy or downloaded as PDF.

The booklet is called Rosemary’s Worm Farm. It explains to children and adults how a worm farm works. The first part is a children’s book with pictures and explanations. The second part shows how to build and maintain different types of worm farms, stackable worm farms, rotating worm farms, worm farms for collecting worm tea and more, even a worm farm if you want to add horse manure on a large scale.


Problems with a worm farm

Fruit flies >>> Sprinkle lime in the worm farm. Be sure to bury the kitchen waste under the top layer of the worm farm. That way the fruit flies can’t get to the leftovers. Some people use so-called worm blankets. You can use an old wet cotton shirt if you want.

Many worms are climbing up the worm bin to escape >>> The reason may be that they don’t have enough oxygen.

The worm farm smells foul and is soggy (anaerobic) >>> Add more bedding and feed the worms less.

The worms don’t eat the food >>> In the cold season they don’t eat much. Another reason could be feeding too much for the amount of worms.
