This is your place to ask a question about anything having to do with worm composting. From “what kind of worms to use”, to “what plants can benefit from worm tea”, and anything in between, all questions are welcome.

And there's no such thing as a dumb question.

Just need a little reassurance that you're doing things right? No matter how much we might read about worm composting, when it comes time to actually do it, there remains a twinge of doubt that you might have left something out of the equation.

I see you nodding your head. Yes, we've all been there.

If it's a problem you're having, someone else in the world is having it too! So ask away. However, if you don't want the whole world to know, you can get in touch with me

here. This is all about support and helping you be successful and confident in maintaining your worms, making worm compost, and worm tea or the use of them on your plants.

Did you know that you will be creating your own web page when your question is published? So tell your friends to check it out and they can add their comments or ask their own question!

The answers to your questions may help others as well. And pictures are always a good addition in helping to find the answer and solve your problem.

You might even have a solution to a problem that hasn't been asked. Be pro-active. Let's hear it!

I'll try and answer as quickly as I can, but if someone else should stop by and add their comment, that's just fine. The more the merrier.
