My lowly two compost bins have grown into dual worm towers. I borrowed some design elements from the worm factories I’ve seen online going for about $100. The theory goes that the worms will slowly move up the buckets as the food is depleted, making harvesting castings from the bottom buckets easier. Just have to keep adding fresh food on the top. Not sure how this will pan out. I got my red wigglers 2 weeks ago, and so far so good. There’s already lots of visible castings, and the worms have visibly grown in size. Depending on how long the finished castings take, I may add one more story to each of these towers. All questions/comments/concerns are welcomed.
