What You Can and Can't Feed Your Composting Worms

You can feed all kinds of organic material to your composting worm, but most have had success with vegetables, fruit waste, tea leaves and coffee ground. Egg shells add grit and calcium which regulates pH and adds grit in the worms diet. The egg shells should be grind up in blender or pulverized with a rolling pin. Bread should be moistened first. Whatever food you add to your worm composting bin, should be finely chopped or blended up in as small of particles as possible so they break down faster.

-Bones                                            - Citrus Fruit
