This lightweight, durable cedar bin is easy to manage, and an attractive addition to any home garden! Worm bins efficiently convert household food waste and garden slash to worm castings quickly and easily. This box, along with 4 lbs. of Red Worms will convert 200 lb of food waste to worm castings per month--the amount of waste a family of four generates. The steady supply of dark, rich worm casting can be used on site for landscapes, gardens and house plants. Castings will not burn even the most delicate of plants.

The bottomless design allows excess water to wick away, helping to prevent over saturation of the bed, which occurs often with plastic models.

The split bed design is an extremely effective approach to vermicomposting. One side is used at a time--when you've filled one half of the box with layers of food waste covered with bedding, you then begin to fill the second half. This gives the worms time to convert the waste in the first half to castings.

When the worms have finished converting, they will then migrate through the cracks in the center divide and begin converting the food waste in the second half. This allows you to harvest your castings from the first half, leaving room for more food waste--so the worms are not disturbed, and the system operates continually!

Worth the $$$

I am new to worm composting which is why I ordered the kit. The box is easy to assemble and good quality cedar. The company includes a DVD about worm composting. The DVD that came with my kit did not work so I contacted the company and they sent a new one next day air. They are wonderful to deal with and helpful too. The only other item I needed to order were the red wiggle worms -- though I strongly suggest not ordering the worms until you have a layer or two of compost already in the bin. Works great!!

Great worm bin, easy fast install

I had been using two small plastic containers as worm bins and we just produce too much for so little space. This bin came unassembled and it was super easy and fast to put together. I think the worms will love it in there. Much better than the plastic bins!

OUTSTANDING for the beginner!

I have been interested in taking the plunge into worm farming and looked at all the smaller, plastic model but a) I didn't really want to deal with worms inside and b) I needed to compost more than the stacking models allowed. I ordered this from Peaceful Valley (which by the way was cheaper than the stacking models) and it was delivered very quickly to California. It comes in pieces with very easy instructions. I'm a 53-year-old woman who is moderately handy. I used a hand drill to assemble with just screws. The informational DVD is really straightforward and really explains everything there is to know. I didn't realize that I needed to dig a hole bury the bin about half way down, but that creates insulation for the worms, which I need because it can get hot here. Also, after digging the whole, I need to line the bottom of hole with bricks to deter burrowing critters who like worms. The roof is sloped down, which will keep the rain off of the worms. Overall, I'd give this 6 stars.
