Worm Farms Most Popular

To celebrate the launch of the Swan Hill Rural City Council’s greenwaste collection service rolled out earlier this year, the Central Murray Regional Waste Management Group recently ran a competition for registered participants.

The winners were Art and Val Evans!

To enter, participants voted for most preferred method of food waste disposal: either worm farming or composting; and the worms won it!

Winners Art and Val Evans received Cyclone and FISKAR gardening tools for their entry which commended worm farms for their ability to turn fruit and vegetable scraps into a great soil improver for the garden.

Not only that, worm farms provide the winners with a nutrient rich worm ‘tea’, and a ready supply of fresh bait when they head out fishing!

Best of all, the Evans’ use worm farming as an interesting way of teaching the grandchildren to get involved in recycling to benefit their environment.

Congratulations to Art and Val for winning the competition and taking up the greenwaste collection service which sees garden prunings and grass cuttings saved from landfill and recycled into a useable mulch.
