Nothing To Hook-up

No power, water or sewage connection is needed. It's perfect for along the side of the house, the garage, or even the apartment rooftop.

Filling Your Bin

Place moist bedding material in the bin. For best results, place at least 21 gallons of bedding (3/4 Full) into the bin. This is the equivalent of two bags of compost or potting mix. Moisten bedding until it is as wet as a wrung-out sponge.

Adding Worms

Add the worms to the top of the bedding material and cover with approximately 1 inch of food scraps (preferably finely chopped). Starting with approximately 2000 adult worms is a good number to start your bin. However, the more worms you start with the faster the bin will reach maximum capacity. A full population is approximately 16,000 worms, or 6.5 lbs of adult worms.

Best Location

Choose a sheltered, shady spot for the hungry bin ­– the ideal temperature is between 60-85°F (15-25°C). Avoid extremes of temperature, particularly full sun in summer, as temperatures over 95°F (35°C) may kill the worms. The bin can be kept on a balcony or in a garage or basement if you don’t have a garden. If the bin is outdoors in winter, make sure it is not subjected to freezing conditions for extended periods of time.
