WORMY FEEDING BASICS
You are about to start using your Worm Studio! Now what do you feed your new wormy friends?
During the first couple of days, let your worms adjust to their new homes without adding any food. RESIST the urge to take a peek, and let them get comfy!
After a couple of days, give them few pieces of food. Start with something they love like a watermelon rind! When you are ready to feed your wormies, remember these 4 things:
1. FREEZE & CHOP
2. DIG A HOLE
2. ADD MORE (MOIST) BEDDING
3. THE QUADRANT METHOD
WHAT TO FEED THEM?
HOW TO FEED THEM?
The Worm Studio is a balanced ECO-SYSTEM containing earthworms, other composting organisms, and invisible micro-organisms! This makes up the the living part of the soil, and they all work together to break down your scraps.
It usually takes a new bin anywhere between 2-3 months to fully come to life (for the microbial activity to spread). PATIENCE IS KEY! You are building an ecosystem from the ground up! Don't rush it, and resist overfeeding too early.
Composting is a natural way to return nutrients back into our soils, a beautiful closed loop system! We are trying to IMITATE NATURE in our worm studio.
