Ex-Snia Compost Place

The compost place we were constructing is almost finished! Here you can see some photos of the bin, I donno how to call it as it doesn't have a bottom. You can also see the distance from the main building. But the space between will be full of tents this week. I hope we don't cause any inconvenient situations as we want to wait before adding worms.…

"Growing veggies ain't soil science" by Gayla Trail from the Globe and Mail

The moment after I wrote my last post about how we want to heal the dirt in the garden of the ex-textile industry with compost, I've read the article of Gayla Trail, the creator of for the website of the Globe and Mail.

It's very interesting for who doesn't only vermicompost for the love of worms, but want also… Continue

This weekend between 29 and 31 May, cyclists all over the world will unite to ride their bikes in Rome, Italy.

Attention Neighbors : Worms Wanted

I'm thinking about buying more worms, but the only place I've found in Italy sells at least 5000 worms for 50euro +30 euro for shipping. Does the shipping always cost so much? I've bought my first worms from a bait shop where you buy a punch of worms (I'm not sure how many there were inside the box but let's say 20-25) for 2,5 euro. It's about 15 times more expensive. If any neighbor of mine, can provide me a better price, I'd like to shop from vermicomposters.… Continue

How did I start

Even if I don't have a steady garden, I'm used to check Gayla Trail's webpage yougrowgirl. The first time I ever saw a vermicomposting bin was, when I was checking her tutorials. Since then, some years have passed, I moved to my appartment with my boyfriend, where I'm free to experiment in gardening and recycling ideas.

When I saw… Continue

Thanks! I'm glad you are spreading the worm joy over in Italy. I sure hope those fishing worms work out and stick around in your bin. I can't really tell what type they are, but maybe someone in this group can. Hopefully they are nice, large red wigglers. Good luck and happy vermicomposting!

The paperwork for exporting worms into EU is to lasting. My suggestion is to buy them from EU members.

There are a lot of vermicomposters in Italy. It` s easier to buy worms in your country

Cause I bought my first worms, less than 30 years ago, from a Croatian company which imported them from Italy. I don´t speak Italian and don`t visite Italian sites but I supose that your people made a big progress in vermicomposting during all these years.

It has been up for a while, but not many folks have updated it recently. Yes please feel free to add the link to the PDF to the WormWiki (and anything else you feel might be appropriate). Thanks for being part of the vermicomposters community.
