Need Worms

jpgarden_2008October 16, 2008

Dear gardeners,

The winter is approaching and I'd like to get a worm bin started to help us compost. Is there anyone else in Jamaica Plain who could share their worms with us? Or do you all have suggestions about where I could get the red wigglers from?

Many thanks

Look to see if there's a horse farm or stable near you, or even just a regular farm. They often have piles of horse manure or compost sitting around, and they are most likely jam packed with worms.

I just typed my city and "stables" onto google and got a whole list of results, gave some a call and asked them if they had piles of aging manure sitting around. If they said yes and allowed me to visit, I gathered my gear and at the end of the day about a lb of redworms were mine!
