How To Rotate Worm Tower Trays Without Damaging Worms + Bin Harvest | Vermicompost Worm Farm

Follow
Vermicompost Learn by Doing

It's tray rotation & harvest time in my VermiHut worm tower, but when I lift the tray hundreds of worms hang from below...Use the technique in this video to protect the worms & keep them in the trays so they can turn your food scraps & shredded cardboard into natural organic fertilizer in the form of worm castings for your garden!!

In addition to demonstrating how I rotate my worm tower tray when I harvest the worm castings, I check on the last feeding of the old top feeding tray and add a new feeding to the new top feeding tray. I also show you the unique way I harvest my worms in this worm tower using an agitation method encouraging the worms to dive down into the lower trays.

Epigeic worms or composting worms are fascinating natural composters & fertilizers that are in most homesteaders bag of tricks to make free organic fertilizer & soil amendments as well as fishing bait. If you've ever thought about vermicomposting or composting with worms to make organic fertilizer & natural soil amendments with your plant based kitchen scraps or food waste, this is the channel for you. I have 3 worm composing bins which you can watch from start to finished worm castings on the 3 playlists following each worm bin. If you haven't started yet, get started now and vermicompost with me!
