Worms - the way to go....

I'm more or less sure this article hasn't been posted.

"A Nottingham-based initiative, the Urban Worm Community Interest Company (UWC), is on a mission to “worm up” the UK by kickstarting an urban worm farming movement that can create high-grade fertiliser from banana skins and old socks.

The social enterprise has received a £50,000 grant from the national lottery to send out 1,000 packs of composting worms – known as tiger worms because of their red skin – to anybody with a DIY worm farm ready to house a population of 100."

Trying to be the person my dog thinks I am!

    I stopped feeding banana skins to my worms as in the summer it fermented and killed them so I'm very careful about giving them too much fruit.

    'My' worms are just there. I let them get on with it and do nothing to poison them. If I find them under things where they shouldn't be, I flick them somewhere else.
