My kids helped me come up with this one. I needed some worm castings, so I just went to the store and bought fishing worms. I took the worms and put them in a bucket with old seed starter and shredded newspaper. The kids are fascinated with their new “pets”. I plan on getting buying more worms off the internet for a much larger worm bed. The castings are an excellent fertilizer.

excellent initiative….and they taste great dipped in chocolate….:)))))

you should poke a few small holes in the bottom for any moisture to escape otherwise the bed will rot…have fun….

we have been into worms for a couple years now and really enjoy the benefits of castings and the tea as well. but one has to be careful about conditions, we lost about 5000 worms a couple weeks ago and still not sure what happened. we still have several thousand left in another bin.

cant get the grand kids interested in this project, even tried to convince them for a school science project, they just think we are nuts.
