How it works

We’re stoked to partner with you in achieving our vision for zero food waste to landfill in Aotearoa. Use these simple five steps to understand how our service works and how to get the most out of it.

 
 

 1. SEPARATE YOUR WASTE.

Like other waste streams, it’s important to get our systems for separation right. We have containers available, or source your own. These are located near where the waste is made, which is then transferred to the worm farm.

2. FEED YOUR WORMS.

Your worm farm can take up to 2 kilos of waste a day, depending on the health of the worms and their environment – just open the lid and put the waste on top. If you’re feeling really kind you can cover it with some newspaper or cardboard.

 

3. USE YOUR NUTRIENTS.

The drip tray will slowly fill with worm tea –
feel free to add this to nearby plants. Emptying the castings from the clip tray at the bottom is part of our service, please let us know if you’d like to keep them and we’ll set them aside for you. They make the best garden fertiliser.

4. LOVE OUR SERVICE.

We try to visit our worm farms every 3-6 weeks (seasonally variable). Our job is to nurture an optimal ecosystem for our worms (Eisenia fetida or Tiger Worms) - this involves working with the PH, moisture, temperature and oxygen levels until we get it right. If you are curious and would like to know more, feel free to ask our friendly team member when they drop in. 

 

5. TELL YOUR FRIENDS.

Our service works successfully in homes, clubs, maraes and schools. If you know someone who would like to be part of this solution we’d love to support them.
