In our latest podcast episode, we talk about one of my favourite climate solutions - worm farms!

Worm farms allow you to recycle all your food waste at home, in a planet-friendly way.

By doing so, you'll be diverting organic waste away from landfills, where it produces methane, a seriously powerful greenhouse gas. Worm farms can also save you money and produce valuable, organic fertiliser for your home garden and indoor plants.

It's also a great way to engage with kids and give them autonomy over a climate solution that makes a real difference.

Let me take you through the how's and whys of starting your own worm farm, so you can witness the magic recycling power of nature first-hand.

I'll guide you through the process step by step:

  • Why it's a good idea
  • The benefits you'll get from having your own worm farm
  • Which one to buy (plus tips on making your own)
  • Where to find worms
  • How to set it up for success
  • What to feed your worms (and what not to feed them)
