Teach your kids how to care for the earth and feed the garden using natural products and home made fertiliser!  

These WormsRUs kids worm farms are a great introductory worm farm especially designed to get kids into home composting. Each kit contains: 75 grams of worms, 2 working layers, liquid base and a lid.  We provide easy to follow instructions that will get your children worm farming with no trouble at all!  There are even some bonus activities for kids on the wrapper.   

Choose a sheltered spot that is shady in summer for your farm. Worms need about 1 cup of mixed food and damp paper scraps per day. Your worms will produce worm castings and liquid worm tea (a homemade liquid plant fertiliser) that you can use to feed your garden.  You can learn more by watching our worm farming video.

Why should you get your children into worm farming?

Starting up a worm farm with your kids is such a great thing in so many ways:

  • Kids just love worms!
  • Setting up a worm farm is a great way to spend quality time with your kids on the weekend or in the school holidays. 
  • Giving children sole charge of feeding the worms in their farm is a simple life lesson in responsibility (and much easier than caring for a pet!)
  • Young worm farmers will be able to see a complete ecosystem growing before their eyes - much more engaging than learning about composting in a book!
  • It creates an early habit of sustainable waste management practices

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

    If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.

    While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

    We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement.
