About this project
What is Worm Farming?
My name is Pauly Piccirillo. I'm the author of The Worm Farming Revolution eBook. I TOTALLY SUCKED at gardening until I fell in love with farming one of the most undesirable, misunderstood lowly & forgotten yet beneficial creatures on the face of the planet. (read the about tab)
Worm Farming is the cultivating of worms for a particular purpose. Generally it's for the purpose of gardening or fishing and even recycling to help keep waste out of landfills.
I Compost Indoors With Worms All Year Round!
If you've never heard of the term "Worm Farming" then it may seem like a silly, eccentric hobby created to study the natural habits of worms.
Well that may be true to some degree, but the truth, meaning, and reason behind this quirky little phrase may be one of the greatest yet simplest technological awakenings to hit the agricultural industry since the invention of synthetic fertilizers.
The ugly truth is the profound effects that man-made chemicals have on plants, animals, the environment, and us. I call this, "One of the most successful failures of mankind".
Science has gone down a dark road and turned to man's inventions for the answers. We should have listened to what was already working in nature and multiplied it by exponential . The answer has been under our noses all along and thousands of people are finally waking up to the fact that a tiny organism IS the link to our becoming reconnected to the land and the food we eat.
Worms have an amazing ability to convert dead organic matter into a wonderful and natural growth medium called "worm castings". It's actually worm poop that is filled with microorganisms that plants depend on for nutrition. Worm castings is as natural to plants as breast milk to a nursing baby. Amazingly, worm castings has a wonderful earthy smell.
Our soil is extremely sick, stripped, & depleted of living microbes and minerals which once held vast amounts a rich nutrition for healthy plants. For decades science has turned its focus on the plant rather than the soil. The answer doesn't necessarily lie in the plant and how much we can mutate it into what we want it to be, feeding it stimulants rather than food.
NO! The answer lies in creating the best living foundation in which a plant can properly attach its roots to, grow strong & healthy to go on to bear tons of nutritious, tasty fruit. As I always say,
"If You Can Get The Soil Right, Then You'll Always Get the Plant Right!"
This is the reason why worms are found wiggling in and out of plant roots and when you see the results it will only make perfect and total sense. The solution to many gardening, recycling, and fishing needs can be found through the simple method of worm farming or worm composting.
What's in the Book?
The Worm Farming Revolution Book teaches you everything you need to know about raising worms in order to grow amazing plants, recycle kitchen scraps, or grow your own fishing worms. This is one of the most comprehensive worm farming books on the market written by yours truly with years of practical and hands-on experience but don't just take my word for it.
You'll learn from other successful gardeners and worm farmers. You'll learn what works for them in all areas from personal to entrepreneurial. Because I never want you only getting your information from one perspective, I have invited several other like-minded successful contributors to glean from.
The Worm Farming Revolution book is full of information, tips & techniques, photos, charts, inspirational quotes, coloring pages, facts, composting terms, how to harvest & use worm castings on your plants, how to grow healthy, large & pest-free vegetation, and on and on.
The book is split into 2 sections.
- Section 1 is all about learning how to raise worms from 6 different species for your particular purpose.
- Section 2 introduces the entrepreneurial side of worm farming. I always like to say that I'm an entre "manure" ;)
In a nutshell this book will Teach, Inspire, and Empower you to make a difference in your life and the life of your family and friends around you by getting away from the harmful synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, & GMO's.
Go From Synthetic Thinking to Organic Doing!
Harnessing the power of composting worms is already revolutionizing the gardening community and one day will change the direction of commercial farming as we know it. Hopefully we'll see the demise of synthetic chemicals in our lifetime and an end to the pain and suffering they cause but only if we stand up and DO SOMETHING!
Will You Please Help Support?
I need your support to help get this book from an eBook to a physical book. While the digital book is "awesome", most would rather have something to hold in their hands and I don't blame them.
The digital book is 100% completed in a PDF format and available for immediate download. It's loaded with outbound links and printable charts. It's 241 pages and more if you count the 12 coloring pages for kids (FREE NOW) if printed on 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper. The publishing team will need to convert it into a smaller, beautiful colorful book.
They will also need to convert/resize and add 100+ color photos, reformat the page layout, and copy edit 74,000 words all before printing can begin in the fall.
This will cost $5,000 so I will need to pre-sell a lot of books or raise the funds through donations.
You may not have a voice or megaphone such as I but if you believe in the mission, vision, project, or goal then please give what you can because your effort truly makes a difference and your financial support IS your voice.
Whether it's $1 or $1,000 you'll be someone who can say, "It's not enough to do nothing...I DID something!" and the best reward will be partaking in the fruit of your labor.
Thank you all for your support and your desire to live a happy & healthy life. I hope to meet you all some day, see your harvest, & hear your testimony.
ALL The Best,

Risks and challenges
The book is completely written. The only challenge now is to convert it from a PDF into a physical form. This involves reformatting over 100 photos, copy editing, and working on the layout. This will involve many emails back and forth and then the final approval before I give the "green light" to publish.
The publisher thinks it will be over 300 pages. We are shooting for sometime in December. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress. Thank you so much for your support. Let us all Teach, Inspire, and Empower the world! :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
