It can be collected from here and used as a very nutritious fertiliser. Dilute this liquid fertiliser into a plant feed.
The wormery consists of 3 layers. Start with the base layer and one empty layer, fill with chopped up green kitchen waste and vegetable peelings including tea leaves, egg shells etc. (Do not put raw or cooked meat in to the wormery). When this layer is full, add the 3rd layer, the worms will work their way to this top layer gradually turning this kitchen waste into compost.

This compact wormery is ideal for small and urban gardens.
Use tiger worms and mixed dendrobaena worms in your wormery.
