Description

Are you part of a community that wants to take action on climate change ? Are you looking to establish a community composting programme or are you a business that wants to be responsible for your waste?

We now offer community kits to convert 10 wheelie bins into worm farms helping to keep your community’s kitchen scraps out of landfill and convert it into the worlds most nutritious fertiliser. Worm manure is teeming with minerals and nutrients essential for healthy plant growth and disease suppression, helping us grow healthy nutritious food without the need for harmful chemicals.

Our kits are suitable for converting 80, 120 and 240 litre wheelie bins.

Maintaining our environmental credentials we have partnered with CC Signs to repurpose old ‘For Sale’ plastic corrugated signs for use as insert drainage trays and legs, keeping more plastic out of landfill sites. Some of these signs may have a few small holes in from use but this does not impact on the product as the sheet is used for drainage. Our brackets and harvesting window are manufactured locally in the East Midlands using recycled plastic.

Includes 10 kits each including:

  • 2 x Plastic corrugated sheets (repurposed For Sale signs)
  • 1 x Tap
  • 8 x Nuts, bolts and washers
  • 5 x Zip ties
  • 1 x Paper template
  • 1 x Worms & Peace sticker
  • 1 x Organic cotton bag
  • 1 x Hessian bag
  • 2 x Brackets
  • 1 x Harvesting window
  • 1 x Coconut coir
  • 1 x Manure brick (made with love by rescued horses)
  • 1 x Worm Care Guide

Worms and wheelie bin not included.

Please note only composting species are suitable for worm farming. We recommend using tiger worms, Eisenia fetida, which can be purchased from our friend Stuart at Yorkshire Worms.

  • 1 x Drill
