We are passionate about Earthworms and our site is intended to inspire and educate people to use Earthworm by-products as natural, organic fertilizers and pest control options for their gardens and their garden vegetables.
We have various solutions to offer including:
- Cost effective Worm Bins (Organoworm Bins)
- The Worms Galore systems (they come in two different sizes)
- Agricultural Worm Beds
- Installation and education of Worm Beds
- Weekly educational presentations and demonstrations
Worms 4 Africa caters to the wormery market in Kwa-Zulu Natal and we specialise in supplying Eisenia Foetida (Red Wriggler) worms, wormery kits and Bokashi Bins to the general public, businesses, farmers and feeding schemes.
Our food comes from the earth, and to produce healthy, energy filled food, we need to have healthy, energy filled soil. Earthworms are essential in creating a healthy soil environment for plants to grow and flourish. There are over 2000 species of worms, however, the worms we work with are composting worms that turn waste into a living medium that supports plant and microbial life in the soil. By using these awesome creatures and their by-products, one can recondition soil, dispose of green household waste and grow one’s own food without the use of inorganic fertilisers which destroy microbial and effective microorganisms and worms in the soil.
Another system that adds huge value to the soil, as well as reduces the amount of household food waste is the use of effective microorganisms (EM). A wormery and Bokashi Bins are perfect composting companions for any household. A wormery takes green household kitchen waste, and a Bokashi Bin allows home owners, restaurants, B&B’s and hotels to dispose of the waste that wormeries cannot process efficiently such as meat, dairy, breads, citrus, acidic fruits and foods.
In order to educate the general public on the benefits of establishing a self sustaining wormery, Worms 4 Africa conducts Saturday morning demonstration seminsars and offers sound advice on the care and management of earthworms ensuring their optimal performance.
Our vision is to inspire and educate people to reduce their carbon footprint by using worms, wormeries and Bokashi composters and to highlight the incredible benefits that the by-products of these systems have for one’s garden plants and home cleaning (drains and wastewater systems), thus saving money and the planet!
Our mission is to change one person’s mindset at a time to recycle degradable matter by using earthworms and creating sustainable resources that will support our earth to produce viable, nutritious and organic food to feed our families for optimal health and wellbeing thus making the planet inheritable to our children’s, children’s grandchildren.
