Blog: Welcome to the Greystone Community Demonstration Garden!!

Learn how to keep a worm farm to produce the best fertilizer nature has to offer.

"How to Keep a Worm Farm" and other questions you were afraid to ask. 

On Saturday, Dec. 1, those of us who braved the uncertain but totally glorious weather were treated to a hands-on lecture by Don Smith concerning how to keep worms as pets (not kidding). He brought us his tools of the trade, and they were so interesting. Everyone took notes, and had many questions, and thanks to Jeannie Cohen, we have a pictorial essay.

Worm farming is so clean that you can keep your container of working worms in your apartment, and the product, worm casings, is the most fantastic fertilizer on the planet.

We now have a small colony established in a very attractive Rubbermaid container; we will feed them and in six months we can start to harvest our casings. If you have questions about worms or compost, Don says to email him at smithdon@mac.com. If you want to come up to our garden and see our set up, let me know.
