Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums

I used to be very active here on the forum. I started small and expanded to another container and then another container and get the picture. But when we moved to Michigan I discarded about 8 lbs of worms in my backyard because I couldn't justify the space in my car for the trip.

As we progressed in the hobby I grew very fond of those black plastic mixing trays. They make a big one and a smaller size. I am partial to the larger size because they hold more worms, but they do get heavy.

We are getting back into worming again this spring. We have a couple of small bins in the basement, but I'm moving things back into the garage. I'm going to build a vertical shelving unit that will hold six of those big mixing trays in a vertical stack. I'd estimate the stack will potentially hold anywhere from 30 - 36 lbs of worms if conditions are right.

That will enable me to start selling again.

I look forward to reading and learning from your experiences.

Glad to see you back! I think you're right about weight being an issue for the larger trays. IIRC, the big trays are also twice the price, but not twice the surface area.

I had good luck with the bigger trays. At my house, vermicomposting has always been an activity my wife enjoys too, so the two of us can work wtih the bigger trays.
