Worm Compost in Community Garden

Posted by Rick (Lyle's Dad) on January 8, 2012, 8:56 am

To all that help feed the worms in the special compost bed for them here at the community garden, thanks. This message is just a reminder of a few things.

1. If you add to the worm bed, please add food that is appropriate for the worms. The worms do not eat Bouganivilla thorny stems and flowers, palm frawns, grapefruit husks, orange husks, limes, etc. Yesterday, there were heaps of these sorts of things cast into the bed.

2. If you add to the worm bed, please please please make sure you close the plastic liner well over the top of the bed and place some stones to keep it closed. Roberto's chickens have had a few free field day episodes in the worm bin when people have simply left the plastic laying there which is easily opened by the chickens.

Thanks all. Also, the kitchen scrap compost pile (with the blue stick) is working great. I turned it yesterday and it is breaking down nicely and even smells a lot better after turning. Keep it coming. Thanks.
