Feed the earthworms table scraps and cornmeal and the worms will multiply quickly.

Worm farming makes organic compost for the garden and each worm eats its weight in scrap daily.

To create the best organic material for a garden, build a 4 by 4 enclosure, add potting soil and fill this type bed with
earthworms. Feed the earthworms table scraps and cornmeal
and the worms will multiply quickly. Worm farming makes organic compost for the garden, within a short period
of time the soil will become enriched and can be used for
your gardens. Earthworms consume a large amount of
foodstuff daily, giving you a use for your table scraps.

Some cities are now considering using earthworms in their
trash dump areas, since each worm eats its weight in scrap
daily.
