It all started when I thought I was going retire but discovered worm composting. I was thrilled about how great these little worms were for the community, organic food waste and our soil. I set off to learn everything about them. Next I was collecting food waste and mulching it with an old lawn mower to feed them. I discovered their castings were great as a natural soil conditioner for the garden so I wanted to share that wonderful discovery with everyone. I met a lovely lady who was as passionate about the environment and wanted to make a difference. So we partnered to help our community. Fast-forward to today and now we divert organic waste from landfill weekly, to feeding our worms, live stock and to make compost. We do educational presentations and produce local products for our community. We have expanded from a backyard operation to a full farm business with over a million worms to our community. - Nevyl Overall -

Composting worms are worms that will eat organic matter. They are great pets and help manage kitchen waste like scraps from vegetables and fruits. Their by-products are perfect for plants.
We feed our worms on one side of the bin and once the food is gone, we feed on the other side. Always cover the food waste and if possible chop or shred the food waste prior to feeding.
Worms leave bins if it is too dry, too wet or not enough food.
With our hot weather we water daily and in the winter just once a week. We may water more often depending if the worm bed is too dry. Worms like the soil damp or semi moist.
