On a smaller scale, worms to start your worm farm don't come cheap and I bought 1000 worms from Bunnings for $55. On top of buying the worms I didn't want to outlay another $70 for an actual plastic worm farm unit so we got into the recycling mode. After seeing Tricia's post from Little Eco Footprints we decided to go with the home made version with the help of Sienna's artwork to identify the worm farm box. Here's the link to the step by step instructions. We are picking up another box off our friends today which will sit underneath this one and I've bought a plastic tap to go into the bottom box which was about $4 from Bunnings. Hopefully we will get rid of our veggie scraps and make great worm juice for our veggie gardens.
