The Urban Worm is on a mission to #wormup the country, and we need your help.

You build your own worm farm, we'll send you the worms

With support from The National Lottery Reaching Communities Fund we have 1000 packs of 100g of Tiger Worms (Eisenia Fetida) to gift to you.

We hate to think of valuable worm food being thrown in the bin when there are millions of hungry worm mouths to feed. Not only do the mighty worms help us to manage our organic waste responsibly, they provide us with a steady supply of the world’s finest fertiliser and compost, for free, helping us to grow in harmony with the earth.

All we ask in return is that you love and care for your worms as if your life depended upon it; we would love for you to share a photograph of you (if you’re not camera shy) and your DIY worm farm for our 1000 Worm Farmers gallery.

We have made a series of videos to help you build a comfortable home for your worms, that won’t cost the earth (literally).

We look forward to seeing your worm farm - sign up by clicking the 'Apply Here' button below the videos.


Remember - no cheating! We can only supply home-made worm farms
