Home Living : July 6th 2010
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, July 6, 2010 3 Worm cafe ideal for a tight spot » ADVERTISING FEATURE Composting is the most organic way to nourish and boost a garden's fruit and vegie produce. To make composting easier at home, Bunnings has just brought in Tumbleweed's Worm Cafe, designed for indoor and outdoor use. Its clever three- tiered set up turns organic household waste into nutrient rich worm castings and worm tea. The process is simple, straightforward and mess-free. The kit contains three large working trays with a fly-proof hinged lid ensuring that the worm farm can be filled easily, and a sloping collector tray at the base to help the worm tea drain to the drip-free tap. The working trays are ventilated on each side to ensure airflow but also prevent rain from filling the trays and drowning the worms. This cross ventilation design also helps to keep the contents from smelling. Bunnings garden tools buyer Darren Cox said the worm cafe was the perfect way for people with small outdoor areas to create their own compost for use on both potted plants and in general gardening. ''The Worm Cafe's compact tiered design allows for mess-free composting and can be easily kept on the balcony or in the laundry." Worms will compost all chopped and mashed kitchen vegetable scraps but it is important to avoid adding large quantities of meat, citrus, onion and dairy foods as worms can find these hard to process. Simply flush the Worm Cafe trays with water once a week to keep the soil moist for the worms. This water also creates the worm tea, so be sure to open the tap and place a bucket underneath to catch the liquid fertiliser. ''Compost tea derived from the Worm Cafe is an organic nutrient-rich fertiliser which helps fortify plants naturally thereby eliminating the need for chemical plant foods," Mr Cox said. ''Worm farms are a great way to help kids understand the importance of sustainability and how food scraps can be recycled for something useful."
