Worm Cafe Subsidy

The City of Canning is offering residents a $120 subsidy on the purchase of a worm cafe, the subsidised price you need to pay is $115. The Worm Cafe is made of recycled plastic and consists of 4 trays on legs with a tap. The package includes 1kg of Worms (approx. 4000), 15 litres of castings, an instruction booklet and 500g of dolomite. Worms will work through most kitchen scraps, require a bit of attention and the cafe is best set up in shade where it can remain moist.
