Worm Farm Tour

On Thursday 31 March the Belconnen Local Group arranged a vist to a the Able Organics Worm Farm near Mount Stromlo.

11 people went on the tour which lasted about an hour.

We got to see lots of worms and how they are used for large scale recycling of urban waste.

Lots of questions were asked and we came away with a greater understanding of worms and their use in composting.

Some left with a greater respect for the worms in their home set-up while others were considering starting a worm farm.

Following the tour the billy was boiled and we continued our discussions over tea and refreshments.
