How to build a cheap worm farm!

by Stephan
(Cape Town and Radevormwald)

To whom it may concern,


My name is Helga and I volunteer for an environmental education center in a
township in South Africa. We aim to educate the youth
in respecting our earth and themselves.
We are moving on to the "waste" section of our adapted curriculum and I
thought it would be a fantastic idea to have the students look after a worm
farm for the month that we teach them how to recycle foodwaste. After waste we move on to the plant section of biodiversity and their project for that month is to
grow a veggie garden on the premises of our centre. If they can learn how
to look after the worms, then it will be a wonderful transition to looking
after the gardens and they can use the worm farm for their gardens.

There are about 30 students, so it is a small scale project. These kids are
so bright and eager to learn. I am basically asking you if you could
possibly donate a worm farm for our cause, or if not that, teach us how to
build and look after our own worm farm. We are a registered NPO.

Please contact me if you are interested!


Answer:
Hello,

I think you are doing a great job helping and educating those children.

It is actually very easy to make your own worm farm and I have written an article about it on my educational website. It has lots of articles that
will help you and the children to understand worm composting and teach them as well how to use them in vegetable gardens.

Have a look at the following page to get started.

If you have any further questions you are free to contact me.

Kind regards
