Food for worm

It is very important to ensure you are not over-feeding your composting worms. If you are new to the composting-worms scene, we suggest you start by monitoring your feedings very carefully. This means that you’ll have to start by feeding smaller amounts of food. By feeding smaller amounts, you will quickly get a good idea as to how much food your given quantity of worms can handle.

A worm can consume more than its weight each day. If you start with roughly a pound of worms in your bin, expect to be able to feed them at least one pound of waste each day.

Below is a short list of foods to feed your composting worms. Also, it is highly recommended that you mix in a high quality source of calcium to your worm food. We like to use ground up eggshells.

Do Feed Avoid/Limit
rice citrus
fruit scraps meat
vegetable scraps bones
coffee grounds garlic
pasta hair
tea leaves and bags dairy

As much as we previously said to avoid feeding your worms the above food items, the reality is that a well established worm bin can handle almost any carbon-based ingredients (including all of the above). That being said, please use moderation when feeding these items to your worms…don’t overdue it. If you have doubts, avoid these foods altogether and stick to the basics of what works.

    Bedding

    The most common bedding materials for composting worms, include shredded newspaper or computer paper, leaf mold, peat moss, animal manures, coconut fiber (coir), and wood chips. Each of these bedding materials has its own list of advantages and disadvantages. For instance, leaf mold is a natural habitat for worms, but it may also contain organisms that you don't want in your worm composting bins. It doesn't matter which bedding material(s) you choose, you must always remember to add a couple handfuls of soil, or rock dust, to your worm bin. This is especially important if you are just
