How to Create & Manage an Organic Garden : Using Worm Castings in Organic Gardens


Hi this is Steve for Expert Village, and today
we will be talking about the use of warm castings in organic gardening. Warm castings have been
used for many years as a good soil builder, its high in nitrogen, and iron, and calcium,
which helps the plants to grow better. You get a better extensive root growth, a healthier
more vibrantly growing plant. As well as it helps to fight off pests and disease. There
are several forms; the main form is in a dirt which is the actual castings. What it is,
is basically the excrement of the worm, its growing farms, what they do is harvest it
put the worms, feed them bread, different starches in order for them to digest it and
then they harvest those castings off, bag it and sell it. What they can do with the
worm castings in this form is brew it into a tea, what they do with that is they put
it into a vat, aerate the vat, let it sit overnight, and draw the juice off, and bottle
it off into a liquid form and sell it, and it’s a little bit easier to use. Some people
like to use it better than carting around a big bag, but it’s very important when you
are dealing with organic gardening; it’s a good nitrogen fixer.
