With @chillbert posting about vermicomposting I thought I’d post about the bins I made this week. Buying a ready made worm bin can be expensive with cheap ones being around £80. I made one for a fraction off the cost, to start with I bought 10 20 ltr buckets with lid off eBay for around £35 and 4 plastic taps for £3.50 each. I made sure they were all bpa free and food grade plastic👍In one of the buckets I drilled a hole big enough to fit the tap snug and sealed it with a hot glue gun, you can use silicone.
In a second bucket I drilled holes in the bottom and top for drainage and so my hardworking little farmers have oxygen.
Then all you have to do is put the holy bucket in the other and bobs you’re uncle you have yourself a worm bin
While I was at it I made 2 Bokashi composters to deal with stuff I can’t feed the worms. You do this in the same way but on the second bucket I only put holes in the bottom this is because you need it as air tight as possible. And I’ve made a plate shape insert to put in the second bucket to push all the air out and keep it compact.
Hope this helps someone to start composting if you grow anything in soil composting is a real must and a great way to deal with a lot of are waste.
I will update on here as I start to fill up the bins to show you how it’s done. Happy growing Percy fam💛✌️
If your plan is for one year, plant rice
If your plan is for ten years, plant trees.
If your plan is for one hundred years, educate children.

Nice job, I watched a someone make a flow through on yt. He was having problems with the flow part. Stuck at the bottom and not flowing. I've been a long time composter and I've been thinking about starting my own worm farm. I use enough of that stuff. I'm keeping those guys in business.
@3plantspete Worms are great!
My most successful wormbin is the simplest one I have. Just an large bin (perhaps 80 liter), with a plywood lid over, not air tight.
As winter was aproaching last year I had some compost with some worms in it outside I wanted to save, so I put it in an 80 liter bin, and brought it inside, in my basement.
The worms thrived and have been feeding them veg-food-scraps, malted barley, some bokashi compost, leaf mold and such since, and also some egg cartons and "empty" toiled paper rolls every now and then.
Whenever I need some vermicompost I scrap it off the top
Somehow it has kept more or less perfect moist level and never been to dry or wet.
Worms are good pets.. they don't need much attention.
