Make Your Own Worm Bin

Drilling-BinIn our Permaculture Design Course, we learned the quick and dirty method of making a worm bin — drill holes into a storage bin, fill it with ripped up newspaper, add worms and food scraps, and put another bin below to catch the precious worm juice. Add water to moisten the paper scraps so that the contents has the texture of a “blueberry muffin.” Use the worm juice as a regular fertilizer in your garden. Vermiculture gives you the chance to observe and interact with cool wrigley creatures, and is great for apartment dwellers to make use of their food scraps. Check out this visual step-by-step tutorial for making your own bin.
