Keeping worms warm

Winter is comming.

For the Tiger Worms resident within the compost bins located at the Wanaka Community Gardens life can be tough during Winter.

This week following a request from Grow Wanaka, the volunteers who manage the Wanaka Community Garden, the MenShed team have been building “lids” for each compost bin.

The lids combined with some sacking or old carpets will help keep the worms warm over Winter.

The aim is that the Worms will emerge in Spring in the numbers and with the energy to continue their great work creating nutrition for the plants within the Community Gardens.

The produce from those plants has made a real difference for many families across the Upper Clutha.

The volunteers – and the worms – are great contributors to our community.
