Feed your worms a diet of fruit and vegetables (nitrogen), balanced with equal amounts of dry organics such as newspaper, tissues, dry leaves, or hay.


  • Chop up food scraps - the smaller the pieces, the faster the worms will eat them. Some people even put their food scraps in the blender for rapid recycling.

  • Start out with small amounts of raw fruit and vegetable, then begin to add small amounts of cooked food, dairy, and other organic materials once your worm farm is established.
