Why does a worm bin need a tap
by caroline littlewort
someone asked me
1) what the tap is for on the worm bin ?
2) where do you explain what the worm bin parts are for and how to start it off ?
3) and they wondered if there wasn't an easier way to do it than a mini-tower worm bin, something for an 83 year old ?
(I am thinking of my mum who's sold many Compacta farms to her friends in retirement villages, maybe that is the answer)
The system is so simple already, I suppose the only way it can get simpler is to reduce the size.
you asked some interesting questions about worm composting.
The tap is not essential for a worm farm but helpful because it allows you to harvest worm leachate (worm tea) that has been produced in your worm farm. This liquid is a natural plant food and can be used as a pesticide as well.
A single worm farm like the Compacta worm farm or the pet poop processor worm farm are indeed even easier to maintain than the Mini Tower worm farm. Nevertheless a 3 tier worm farm like the Mini Tower has as well a lot of things that make it attractive.
We have a lot of articles that explain how to set up and maintain worm bins. The pages that should give you or your client lots of initial help are
