Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
They are happy, healthy. I had a cleaning lady in this week and challenged her to find the worms in our house. When she couldn't figure it out, I narrowed the her search to rooms, then to the specific room. She couldn't find them. The cabinet looks so natural. Nothing tell-tale to give a clue.
They are eating about 2lbs a week. No smell, liquid safely dripping into lower cabinet.
Will be moving the file cabinet into my store next month.

I could just use a small container to collect lunch trash and carryit back home at he end of the day but... my store is a "green" store. We sell composters. We give composting workshops. Wouldn't it be great to have a method of vermicomposting to use that's enticing for the novice right there.
So, I found a black…Continue
