Book Description

31 Mar 2010
Around the world wormeries are coming more and more into the spotlight as governments strive to reduce the level of household waste ending up in landfill sites and look to make better use of the resources that we have available. On a personal level it is actually very easy to contribute to both of these aims while also ending up with supremely rich compost and fertiliser, and all with the help of the humble worm. Mike Woolnough has discovered that worms and their by-products improve his crops enormously, making use of household scraps and rubbish that previously went into his bin. Starting from a small wormery in the conservatory or garden, Mike takes you step by step up to a sophisticated system capable of handling all your garden waste, or processing that huge heap of livestock manure that you were wondering how to dispose of, plus a host of other waste items along the way. Your waste is a valuable resource - learn how to use it to your advantage with Mike's help.

5.0 out of 5 stars great little book 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I think this book tells you all you need to know, its not a massively detailed book, but it has given me enough information to start up a wormery with and the worms are still doing well after 6-7mnths so I must be doing something right. I have referred to the book a couple of times and always seem to find what i need when i'm not sure.
i would happily recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get to Know your Worms 15 April 2011
This book told me everything I needed to know about setting up my wormery. The information was easily accessable and presented with sufficient humour to make worm keeping a fun activity as well as being beneficial to my plants.
