Coconut coir is a very popular and inexpensive sustainable organic material that can be used for bedding material in worm bins. Coir is very useful when you start a new worm bin and don’t have a lot of organic matter for the worms to eat and live in. Coconut coir will give your red wigglers a good start in their new home. Some worm composters come with a small brick of coir but it’s always a good idea to buy some extra.
Coir has many other uses for the homeowner and gardener.
Coir is natural coarse fibers extracted from the fibrous outer shell of a coconut. Coir is a 100% natural and renewable resource. It has spongy characteristics, giving it excellent air space and drainage with a very high water holding capacity making it ideal for use in your garden and for worm composting bins.
