About worms and composts

‘Worm Café’ Worm Farm

The City is pleased to offer City of Nedlands residents the opportunity to purchase a subsidised worm farm.

The Worm Café is made of recycled plastic, consisting of a tray system on legs with a tap to empty liquid leachate. The price includes the "Worm Café" worm farm as well as 1kg of worms (approximately 4000), 20 litres of castings and a comprehensive instruction booklet. The worm farm has been set up 2 to 3 months in advance, which means you will get a good supply of quality liquid within 24 hours of delivery.
