A Worm Tower is basically a length of pipe buried halfway in the ground with holes drilled in the buried part for worms to get in and out. Food scraps are added directly to the tower instead of into your composting bin, and are eaten by worms already living in the target part of your yard.

Worms are great help in increasing the amount of water and air in your soil. They help by breaking down organic matter into food and minerals that plants can take in to help them grow healthier. Worms eat and leave behind castings that become very nutritious fertilizer for the plants. Click here to get worms for a low price.

You can add Worm Towers to your full blown vermiculture / vermicomposting regime or just use them by themselves, particularly in raised beds
