  • Can I convert my bin into a worm farm?

    Created by Scott Summers on

    Hi, I have a 220L normal composting bin. I have too much waste material and not enough time to wait for it to compost. Can I turn the compost bin into a wormery?

    Thanks

    Scott

    Hey Scott!

    I would consider adding Bokashi to the pile to help increase the decomposition rate. Increasing the temperature and moisture a tad should help as well. In order to turn your compost pile into a wormery you would need to create waste “layers” separate by plastic frames or bins. The bottom “layer” should be a catchment to save the “tea” the worms produce.
