Worm Compost from Kelp
We are trying to promote worm composting in Africa, as few people here can afford commercial fertilizer, for school gardens etc. We are busy setting up a web site to discuss cheap DIY ways of composting and could use suggestions.
Has anyone ever tried worm farming with kelp or other types of sea weed?
We have a plentiful supply of kelp Â literally tons thrown up along our coasts Â and I once read that ancient Romans improved soil fertility by digging in sea weed. However I am worried that the sea salt in the kelp - could it be detrimental to the worms, or otherwise produce compost that is too salty for garden plants? If you know the answer, or could put us in touch with someone who might, we would be very grateful.
