Asteria Services has been able to purchase a commercial size worm farm thanks to funding from the Bendigo Bank Community Enterprise Foundation.
Recently set up thanks to the funding, the worms have taken up residence at Asteria’s Nelson Street site.
Asteria Services CEO Annie Constable said the worm farm has had a “very positive” impact at Asteria Services.
“Our Asteria participants are very interested and engaged in learning about what the worms like to eat, as well as keeping the temperature and moisture stable in the unit, and, how we can reuse our food, garden and paper waste effectively,” she said.
