"My personal feeling is 1,5 ft height is great, more than that compromises air flow. With a bin of your size it's far easier to control. Water your your mouldy food & pour the liquid over the whole bin surface, place the remaining solid mass…"

"Hi, Lindsay. It's important to put a couple of small handfuls of dirt in the bin when preparing the bedding. It inoculates the bin with various bacteria, molds, etc that help create a healthy worm environment. It also adds the crucial grit that…"

"Redwormcomposting has a good video this week about how to prepare a batch of food: simply put, add lots of bedding, some 'living material' (soil, manure, some vermicompost), mix it up and let it sit for a few days."

"Hi ~ Add some of the scraps but NOT the liquid at the bottom as its acidic. Get your bed ready at least a week BEFORE you add your worms, it would be great if you could get some vermicast from someone else to get your bed prepared with some of the…"

"Yikes.....well, unless you are going to build a different one, this will have to do. The bin shouldn't be so deep that you cannot manually manage it if it is not commercial. Those folks usually have machines for stuff very large. Each situation…"

"Neat.  It's a gov site so I think their idea is to keep costs down to a min to attract people into doing it, not a bad idea at all.   So instead of going for the flowthrough, it's on the ground and harvested by feeding one…"
