DIY Worm Bin

Haven't been able to make it to a Worm Bin Workshop? No problem. Today we are sharing a video on how to build your own worm bin! If you'd like to learn more about vermicomposting before you dive in, we recommend checking out the book "Worms Eat my Garbage" by Mary Appelhof.

Materials Needed: 
  • 1 lb of Red Wiggler worms (Eisenia fetida)
  • 10 gallon (shallow) plastic container
  • Drill
  • 3/16 drill bit
  • 2-3 handfuls of garden soil 
  • Fruit and veggie scraps (non-citrus)
  • 3 - 4 lbs moist bedding (leaves or newspaper will work!)
  • Extra lid or drainage basin for under your worm bin
  • Pieces of wood or other material to prop up your worm bin over the drainage basin

  1. Try melting the holes with a soldering iron, instead of drilling them. MUCH easier, and never cracks the plastic. Just do it outside, because there will be fumes.
