Vermiculture, or Raising Redworms (GA-203)
Vermiculture, or Raising Redworms
Welcome to our Vermiculture, or Raising Redwworms course! Our homesteaders have developed a fairly comprehensive course (to which they’ll be adding periodically) designed for people new to raising redworms, those raising them in the city, or those who’ve been raising them for awhile. We cover finding good redworms, knowing why and how to raise them, making and maintaining a worm farm, and everything else you can think of. If you have a question, or if something isn’t adequately covered, just leave a comment and we’ll get back to you. Chances are it’s covered somewhere in the course!
How This Works
Our Vermiculture, Raising Redworms course is as comprehensive as we can make it! To begin, simply click the Curriculum button. From there you take lesson after lesson about raising redworms. Included in this are quizzes to test your comprehension, as well as video tutorials. Experienced redworm farmers may just want to read the lessons which pertain to their current situation. Feel free to ask questions in the comment section as you go along! Our homesteading mentors may take a day or two to get back to you (we’re working our own homesteads), but their responses will be thorough.
