It has lots of info on starting your own warm farm. Good way of turning kitchen waste into something great for your garden, and doesn't take much space.

Thanks for the info about the cotton seed meal.

I can't help you with finding a worm farm. This one ships worms all over the country and my father used to get his worms for fishing from them starting 40 years ago. Maybe look under bait shops for fishing and ask them where they buy their worms from.

Gabby,
I just thought of this, Cotton Seed Meal is a good substitute for peat moss when you want something slightly acidic like peat moss is. Good for use arond acid loving plants like blueberries and azaleas

Thanks! I knew there was a reason I stopped using it! I do buy compost and I go to a worm farm and get big bags of their castings. I'll just keep doing that!

It is organic and it does improve your soil, but the peat bogs are being destroyed. I don't use it anymore. Compost is better, and if you don't have your own, you can buy it inexpensively

I thought I read that it's not a good environmental practice to use it, but I have no idea why.
