I think I'm posting in the right section *fingers crossed*
Well basically I'm looking to dive into vermicomposting, as I've heard it bears the fastest results in terms of how much compost it churns out. Seeing that I have nearly 300sq yards of garden to fill up with this organic compost I doubt I can wait three to four years to get enough compost from the natural method!
I have everything down to the core in terms of how to start and run a vermicompost, except the one thing which seems to be the easiest. Sigh.
I NEED TO FIND REDWORMS. I'm not talking about your brown everyday earthworms but red wriggler worms to be precise!
I've read that these are the best apart from Nightcrawler worms and yet I have never seen or found any red wrigglers or nightcrawlers anywhere.
Anyone who can either help me by providing me some of these creepers, or by pointing me in a direction from which they can be attained cheaply is welcome to share the spoils of the first harvest with me!
P.S- I live in Karachi!
Thanks in advance members!

And unlike its good for the environment and doesnt require keeping and feeding cows. Rather than releasing methane gas, worm dung is made from household waste such as paper,teabags,green vegetable scraps etc. The result is that once you have a box full, leave it for a month, and when it gives off a strong earthy scent, you will have black colored compost(the type shown in western garden pictures). It is possibly the best fertilizer and natural too. If you can help me arrange for the red Wriggler worms, id be Happy to post a tutorial of setting one up and sharing the soil with you!
