Worms and Stuff
|DIY Natural 18 Gallon Tote Worm Bin|
Update 1-18-13 - Check out my 13Skills page to keep tabs on my worm bin progress. I also have a Worms Board at Pinterest that I add to as I find information you many want to follow. Feel free to leave a comment here with any information that you think might be helpful to me, too!
Update 2-19-13 - I completed the construction of my Worm Bin and have a Bin Tutorial that walks you through the whole process if you are interested in making one of your own!
Youtube is an amazing concept for those who want to pass on information, and those of us looking for new ideas. I spent quite a bit of time, (oh, and how quickly it goes), looking at numerous and I mean numerous videos. Two users are worth mentioning. The first is Liz with her channel Big Tex Worms. Liz is a very common sense Texas gal. She sells bins and worms at her website, Worm Bin Composting, and she is also very free with her information. I recommend spending some quality time with Liz on youtube as well as at her website. She demonstrates a unique way of feeding her worms, one that doesn't produce liquid residue like other methods do. The first time I saw the "flow through bin" system was in her video. However, her bins were 50 gallon garbage cans. That wasn't going to solve my problem, but the system intrigued me. It made much more sense than the Worm Factory or the Rubbermaid tote bin system.
|Sandy's Worm Bin|
These waste bins are very easy to come by. Sandy suggests getting a very sturdy one for years of use. She recently has found them in black, which would be even better for the worms. I'll be shopping for my bin and putting it together in the next week, as I've asked Santa for worms for Christmas. (That sounds so strange!)
