HOW TO… Set up a worm farm

Louise, the Northern Network’s Project Facilitator with Groundwork Yorkshire, has been supporting our pilot hub Horton Community Farm and has created a fantastic video on making a worm farm!

In support of Plastic Free July, the team at Horton Community Farm were keen to find a use for some of their plastic containers so, with guidance from The Urban Worm, they set about creating a mini worm farm.

After preparing their containers with drill holes, they added bedding of shredded paper from the office, before foraging for some worms!

Once complete, they’ll feed the worms regularly with kitchen scraps and will be able to harvest worm manure and worm tea -an excellent liquid fertilizer!
