DEAR NEW FARM:

I am from West Australia and cannot seem to find information on the optimum temperature for raising worms in a worm farm. Can you help me?

DEAR KEVIN:

The best temperature range for those wiggly little beneficial critters down under is 55°F to 75°F. Check out the New Farm article Worm-bin construction made simple for more about ideal conditions for raising worms, including how to build your own home-scale vermicomposting system.
