I have a raised bed garden which I've filled with good topsoil in the amount of 24 cubic feet. (6x4x1) I want to use worm castings to jump start it.

Does anyone know how much worm castings would be needed?

How much castings do you have? You hardly can't overuse the stuff since it won't burn your plants; you can use as much as you like.

If you have enough to add a 1 inch layer and mix it into your soil you'd get a great jumpstart. Any more than that would just be increasing the benefit.
