The cardboard worm towers or worm kit were advertised in
Good Organic Gardening magazine which has gone back to the Library. I've emailed their advertising people to see if they will tell me who is selling the kits.
Mark - how about copying and pasting this whole thread? Could be a good one for others to contribute to and won't get buried like a 'status' will.
I've not put my 4 towers into production yet. My plan is to add partly-made compost (less attractive to compost flies) to the towers. After I seed the gardens with the mix of soil-worker worm eggs, then add red compost worms to the towers.
None of that takes toxicity into account. Until I had read that link, I had no idea about it. Wondering what to replace the plastic with. Steel - terracotta - glass?
Now somewhere recently I saw an ad for a worm tower kit made from heavy cardboard which must break down eventually. If I can find the link again, that idea might be a viable option.
I did see that to, but there are 2 other factors still to consider.
1) are we adding toxins to our soil?
2) is the surface area large enough to deal with the inputs before they give off toxins?
This is just another look from the other side of the coin, plus a dash of chemistry
