How to look after our worm farms.

Our worm farm needs to be in a shady and sheltered place.
Worms need protection from the sun.
We need to put 3 capfuls of water into the worm farm every 1-2 weeks.
Shake or turn your worm farm every 2 weeks.
Feed your worms every few days. They eat as much as they weigh.
Worms don't eat much bread. They don't eat citrus fruit (oranges,lemons,mandarins,grapefruit),kiwifruit,meat,dairy products(yoghurt,butter,milk,cheese).
Worms prefer their food chopped finely.
After a few weeks you could collect the vermacast .To get it out, put holes in the bottom of your worm farm, or pour it out of the top.
The vermacast is really good for the garden.
