Advice on worm bins and how to keep them will be available at Stroud Valleys Project eco shop on Saturday 6 August when Faith Tinley from the Wormery store explains all about composting food waste.

The Wormery Store is a family business based in Charfield, near Wotton-under-Edge and sells all kinds of worm bins and accessories to help turn raw and cooked food waste into useful compost.

wormerystarterbox“As our family grew and the daily waste from uneaten sandwiches and unwanted meals began to mount up in our wheelie bin we decided to buy our first worm bin.

“The more we used the worm bin the more we learnt and so we decided to start a business,” explained Faith.  “A wormery is simply and effective way of harnessing nature in a box. Worms have an amazing ability to turn organic material into a useful fertilizer.”

On average approximately 38% of our household waste is organic material. Food accounts for 19% of this waste and cooked food is more likely to be thrown away than raw. However, most of this waste can be diverted away from landfill into an environmentally sound wormery.

Faith will be at Stroud Valleys Eco shop from 10am.
