Worm Composting Bin Information

I made this worm bin video to demonstrate that you can make a worm bin out of almost any kind of storage bin that you may already have on hand. It's likely you have all the supplies needed.

1.  A storage bin - I used a low-profile under-the-bed plastic storage tote
2.  A drill - I drilled holes in the lid for ventiliation
3.  Newspaper - Shredded news print makes great bedding for worms
4.  Kitchen scraps - Vegetables and fruit go in the worm bin instead of the garbage bin

After a couple of months you can use the resulting worm castings to provide nutrients for houseplants, flower beds, or you can even start an above ground vegetable garden like I did.
