From the Worm Ladies of Charlestown


Your best resource for everything vermiculture!











The Worm Ladies of Charlestown, Inc. 

Change your world!  













Worm Castings and the tea you can make with them are both high in nutrients and beneficial soil organisms that help plants thrive.





Benefits
  • higher germination rates                
  • faster plant growth
  • higher yields
  • dosease and pest resistance
  • macro and micro nutrients
  • beneficial soil biology
  • organic
  • chemical free




How They're Made
Our castings are made by thousands of red wiggler composting worms at our worm farm where they feast on food scraps (mostly fuit and vegetable pulp) and other organics.  Once the worms, bacteria, and fungi have broken down the material, the worms naturally migrate towards fresh food, and the castings left behind are screened to 1/8 or 1/4 inch and ready to use.







How To Apply
Castings can be blended directly into garden soil or potting mix or used to top-dress the soil around the base of the stem before watering.  Castings can also be used to make aerated compost "tea" that can be directly applied to plants and soil, ideal for greenhouses and nurseries; applied as a foliar spray or injected through irrigation manifolds.








If you are interested in visiting our worm farm for demonstrations, give us a call at 401-742-5915 or visit www.wormladies.com.




How They're Sold
The Worm Ladies have found that fresh castings make a world of difference.  We ensure our castings are fresh, are never dried out, or are put in air-tight containers.  We partner with local nurseries and garden supply retailers to offer fresh castings sold in 5 gal pails, 2lb bags, or from self-serve display containers.  We are also assisting retailers in setting up in-store worm tea brewers so that worm tea can be sold fresh to customers.   





If you are interested in setting up a castings or tea display in your nursery or store, please give us a call at 401-742-5915 or visit www.wormladies.com.
