Nature's Wormery™ Standard

Why the Nature's Wormery ™ Standard?

In the UK over 20 million tonnes of food waste goes into landfills each year, more than any other type of waste (www.sita.co.uk). While traditional backyard composting has its place, the process can take up to two years and rotating it can become a chore. Worm composting uses worms to do the work of breaking down waste and is more efficient and easier to manage than a traditional backyard compost pile. In addition, its compact design makes it perfect for use in any household. Worm composting makes it easy to recycle kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrientrich fertiliser for your plants, creating a more sustainable lifestyle by recycling and improving soil

quality. The Nature's Wormery™ Standard houses thousands of composting worms in a compact space. These worms work 24/7 to efficiently produce highly beneficial, rich compost packed with microbes and water soluble plant nutrients. This eliminates all the work of traditional composting and yields a much more valuable end product. Worm compost has been proven to have ten times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost. The more nutrients that are available to your plants, the larger they grow and the more bountiful your harvest is. This system allows you to enjoy ORGANIC vegetables, fruits, and flowers grown with the help of your kitchen scraps.

At A Glance

The Nature's Wormery™ Standard is simple to set up and operate. Managing your Nature's Wormery™ Standard takes less than 15 minutes a week. Included with each Nature's Wormery™ Standard is a comprehensive instruction guide that makes setup easy and gives detailed tips on how to best manage your new Nature's Wormery™ Standard year‐round. Start with just the bottom tray and bedding material included.

Add 500 grams of composting worms and start filling the tray with household waste. The worms will process and recycle the waste into fine compost full of nutrients. When the first tray is full, stack another on top. Each tray has a grid bottom, so worms migrate upward as new food is added. As waste is broken down, moisture filters through the system, taking nutrient‐rich particles with it. This makes it possible to harvest organic liquid fertiliser right from the spigot.

Adding Food & Waste

Adding household waste to the Nature's Wormery™ Standard is easy; just open the lid and toss the food in. Fruits, vegetables, grains, paper, egg shells, leaves, coffee grounds and more can be added. Three foods to avoid are diary, meat, and citrus items; these can be harmful to the worms and are difficult to compost. Feed your worms about 50% food scraps and 50% fiber and paper. This creates the optimal environment for worms and finished compost. The goal is to recycle what you usually throw away. Don't worry about feeding your worms every day. Some people feed them a handful a week; some people feed them a handful a day. The general rule of thumb is worms can eat about half their weight in food per day. This means that if you start with 500 grams of worms, they can eat 250 grams of food per day. Worms can
