Doggy-Do Wormfarm

The latest worm farm addition at Earthwise has been a 'Doggy Do' worm farm where any passing dog's poo can be placed for recycling by resident worms in the bin under the banana trees.

The worm farm is a cut down rubbish bin with the upper section being sunk into the ground and the dog droppings dropped through the lid. The worms are in the base and eat the poo mixed with paper which then fertilises the banana tree, where the farm is placed.

A bucket with the bottom cut out and lid will serve the same purpose. If you try this at home or want to replenish supplies at Earthwise please don't put in poo from recently wormed dogs as it will kill the compost worms.
