That is a great solution without using commercial fertilisers for garden lovers and individuals seeking an organic and 100 percent natural means to enrich ground. You should look for the two common worms, should you be considering starting a worm farm. These are the Red Earthworm (the Lumbricus rubella) and the Red Wiggler (the Esienia foetida).
You can determine if you would like to produce a worm farm on a small scale or on a large scale.

Composting bins or vermiculture bins (worm-farm bins) can be purchased online. Nevertheless, worm farming can be started by you with a few simple containers such as plastic bins, buckets, metal containers, wooden crates and many other items, of your own.
