Wormlovers A Hungry Bin Worm Farm with 4000 worms!
The Hungry Bin is the modern wonder of worm farms! A continuous flow system, the Hungry Bin is far more efficient than worm farms that use stacked trays. The unique shape of the bin creates a large surface area, allowing the worms to easily access the food scraps at the top – they’re surface feeders after all – allowing them to process more waste, more quickly. The tapered sides encourages the worms to stay on the surface, while compressing their castings below.
Zea Hungry Goods x6 large Ollita Sol Irrigation Systems
The Ollitas (pronounced: oyeetas) are Mexican hand made clay pots that allow water to seep through, letting plant roots capture the water before it disappears into the soil. Water is dispersed around the soil by capillary action translating into almost 100% of water absorbed directly by the plant roots. Benefits include; 75% water savings, easy to use, watering only a couple of times per week, for all herbs, vegetable and flower gardens, no evaporation nor run-off. For every Ollita purchased, ZEA Hungry Goods donates one more to low income urban and rural agriculture projects across Mexico.
