How to grow redworms on a large scale and produce worm castings — 2 Comments

  1. Key point: compost alone will not produce healthy plants unless it has been activated by soil organisms such as worms, protozoa and fungi. These organisms turn soil into a form plants can uptake in the roots (bioavailable). So the worm windrow method shown above is much better and faster than say just throwing leaves in a big pile. Dave at I Am Organic does a good job of explaining what goes on in the soil.

  2. To recap: We might create worm windrows 12″ high between forest garden rows. This has several main advantages: it produces compost, lots of extra worms, and you can use the worm beds to grow veggies. Of course we’ll leave space on the sides to walk and drive a tractor.
