Here’s a quick how-to on building a pretty great worm composting bin.
Need Worm Composter Plans? Great worm composting bin video here! I like how Rick show us how to build a simple worm composter that can handle a large amount of food waste, and what’s not to like about Rick’s calm sensibility and sense of humor? I have a few barrels like this, and one of the will now become a food composter based on Rick’s worm composting bin plans laid out in the video.
What made me blink was when Rick was talking on GF Radio about how to make a worm composter ( listen here ) , and I couldn’t quite visualize what he was describing, then he made this video and the lightbulb went off in my head.
The photo in this video of all the worm compost he has made from his family’s kitchen scraps is wow. Rick was saying that between recycling and worm composting, he has little to put in his regular trash cans. A zero waste house is possible here.
For me, worm composting always meant a plastic tub with a lid on it, and it was in your kitchen or garage, and it kinda worked. With Rick’s worm composter plans shown in the video, it now makes sense how you can compost your way to zero waste.
A few key points i took away from this was the importance of drainage and air flow, and the brilliant simplicity of Rick’s design. Look on craigslist for food grade barrels, look online for composting worms, aka red wigglers.
Have you built a worm composter, or bought one? What have your learned about using one? What works best for you? let us know below:
