Worm Composting Tips: What You Should & Shouldn’t Feed Your Worms

Worm composting is one of the best organic composting methods you can try at home. It works by adding kitchen scraps and other recommended waste materials into a bin and using worms to break them down properly. Worms can speed up the breakdown process and help you create a well-balanced compost.

So what types of food can you feed your garden worms? Anything can be fed, but there are certain things to keep in mind. Meat, garlic, onion, bread, and cereal should not be added as they can cause bad odor and attract flies and bacteria in your compost bin. Citrus fruits, salad dressing, oil, salt, sugar and other processed foods are also not advisable.

Vegetables (especially the green leafy ones), coffee grounds, tea bags, and eggshells are some of the foods that you can feed your worms instead. These foods contain essential nutrients such as nitrogen and calcium, which your plants need in order to reach their full potential.

So if you want to start worm composting today, be sure to read this list of foods that garden worms can and cannot eat. This way, you can achieve the perfect compost for your garden soil.
