Urban Worm Bag
Create organic fertilizer inside or outside your home or apartment using nothing more than common household waste like newsprint, cardboard, and food waste.
Turning Food Waste Into Food for the Soil
GO EASY AT FIRST!
Any worm bin needs time for the worm and microbe ecosystem to develop.
In the first few weeks, be very conservative with your feedings, adding only a cup or two each week until you see the waste is being broken down easily.
Stop adding food waste and add bedding if you encounter foul odors, gnats, or fruit flies.
STAY SAFE WITH FEEDINGS
Stick with non-dairy, non-meat food wastes.
Worms love banana peels, apple cores, all sorts of melons & nearly all vegetable waste.
Food waste is incredibly high in water content, so make sure to add dry bedding with each feeding. For a feeding, we recommend 2x the volume of bedding to food waste.
Some users like to layer their food waste and bedding. Others like to mix them together.
Pssst....we like to mix them together!
IT'S HARVEST TIME!
After 4 to 6 months *and* when your Urban Worm Bag is about 75% full, it's time to harvest! Remove the patented bottom of the "UWB" and get those castings!
FEED. YOUR. SOIL.
Use castings as a top dress, a side dress, or mix into growing media at a 10% substitution rate, by volume.
The microbes will help cycle nutrients, aid in water retention, promote faster germination, suppress pests and pathogens, and will simply feed your soil.
Your garden or grow operation will thank you!
