Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums

While I keep my worm bin inside in my apartment. I just saw this video in Youtube and thought it was cool for people doing an outdoor worm bin. I particularly like that he choose a trash can with wheels. Also it is a great video easy to see what he's doing.

I like the idea of the trash can, but I think he is going to need to acommodate a way to remove leachate fromthe system or he will wind up with dead worms.

He did drill the bottom. So I guess he just lets it leach onto the ground.

I'm new to this but everything I've seen suggests using bins a lot more shallow then those.

Ben, yup, the basic simple rubbermaid worm bin is typically more shallow then these. However, deeper bins like these are used to set up a "continuous flow through bins. Which take longer to construct / setup than the rubber maid but reduce the amount of separating of worms / compost at the end of the process.

Ahh, see that must be covered in Advanced Vermicomposting 201! ;)

I'll check that out once I get a handle on the basics! Thanks Steven.

Think that the system is probably big enough and contains enough dry materials to cope with the leachate.

Also he was quick enough to set it up. You could just empty the whole thing out now and again and add some more dry materials.

Think he should have added more air holes myself.
