Welcome to Wormmy. Our site was founded by Aaron Chong, who started his journey with earthworms and vermicomposting in his native country, Malaysia.

As time passed, we became fascinated by all kinds of worms and have expanded this site to be the expert source on all things worms.

The different species, the different types (aquatic, parasitic and more!), their predators and have created expert guides and information to help our readers on all things worms. As we’ve grown, we’ve onboarded qualified vets to fact check our work and contribute to content themselves. Meet Team Wormmy below:

Content Formatting
Mert is from the UK and formats our content here at Wormmy. He makes our content look pretty and easy to digest for you (just like a worm!). With a background in video editing and social media, he wasn’t initially a fan of worms but we’ve converted him. Like everyone else, he’s now a fan of our slithering friends and is trying his hand with a starter worm bin. By the time you read this, he’ll probably have moved out to the middle of nowhere and own a huge worm farm where he lives off the land…

Phillip Mann

Phillip is an avid researcher of worms and a massive vermicomposting buff. Most fascinated by what earthworms eat and how to farm and breed them, as well as using their castings to grow his own plants, fruits and veg. It’s not all about that worm-life for Phillip though, as he is also a big time coffee connoisseur (and loves feeding his used coffee grounds back to his Wormmy friends!)
