Home Composting & Worm Farming

Why should I Get a Worm Farm?

Since nearly half of all household waste is food scraps and garden waste, composting bins and worm farms provide a great way of not only diverting waste from landfill but creating nutrient rich compost for your garden and vegetable patches. Composting and worm farming aid in soil conditioning and fertilizer production and are great way to educate adults and children alike about the importance of recycling and waste reduction.

Compost Bins
