Worms Work

The Worms Work project has been started, through schools in the Dunbar and East Linton area, to teach children to teach others and their families how to save a valuable resource that often ends up rotting away in a landfill site.

Worms fed on food waste live happily and work tirelessly in a small box made from locally grown timber

In return for being fed on leftovers and given a nice place to live, the worms will provide a top grade compost to add to the garden. If you grow your own this will save you money on expensive fertiliser.

Why compost at all? By composting our food waste, we are simply helping the natural process of decomposition. Living material dies and the nutrients are recycled into the soil to be used by plants to help them grow.

Compost is great and

  • Provides natural food for plants
  • Improves the structure of the soil
  • Helps to retain water in the soil for the plants to drink
  • Don’t Waste The Food Waste.

When we use our food waste to make compost, we are not only providing important food for plants in the soil but we are also helping to reduce the huge amount of waste that goes into landfill sites where it lies and rots along with all the other rubbish.
