Worm Composting Bin
What Will You Learn?
Learn how to make a worm composting bin, which is a great way to turn kitchen scraps into fertilizer for your garden.
Add Holes in the Bins
Dill holes in the bottom of one of the bins. This will allow the processed fertilizer to fall through and be collected in the lower bin.
Drill holes along the top section of that same bin you just drilled in Step 1. This will let air come in when the two bins are nested together.
Drill more air holes in one of the bin lids. You won’t need the other lid but it will be good to keep around if you need to seal the collection bin for transportation.
Set up the Bins
Put the drilled bin inside the solid collection bin. Fill the bottom 2–3 inches of the bin with shredded newspaper.
Your bins are now ready for worms to move into!
Find a good source for worms and add them to your bin. By feeding them kitchen scraps and the occasional newspaper, the colony will take care of itself and produce plenty of fertilizer for your garden.
