Rainwater is Wonderful for your Worm Bins


When it rains, get those buckets out to collect water for the worms.  DO NOT water worms with city water if it has chlorine in it. The chlorine is not beneficial to the worms or the microbes. This is another tidbit of information we received at the 2012 Vermiculture Conference in North Carolina and one small issue I have been wondering about.

If you do not have rain, put your water out for 24 hours to dechlorinate before moistening your worms and bedding. We keep jugs of water handy at all times.
