Here’s a worm tower, and
it’s a vertical worm farm. Just a big pot going down into the garden, holes in the side, open to the bottom. The worms only live in organic matter, so they won’t go into the soil. These are compost worms, not earthworms, but the byproduct is these have great fertilizing qualities for the garden, and create a compost and a worm juice that gives us free fertilizer. Fantastic convenience for a home garden or an urban garden, and here it’s a community
garden demonstration. With these compost worm towers, the miniature vertical
worm farm is in the garden. They don’t leave there, they
don’t go through the soil. They’re being well fed,
they stay right there where there’s high quality organic matter. And here, that the juices and the compost fertilize the garden in situation. You don’t have to separate your
worm farm from your garden. Great design.
