Kids Worm Farm
COMP-KIDS-1-1Regular price $35.00
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
