Put your red worms in the bin and put organic materials inside.
Keep the bin in a warm spot but not under direct sunlight.

Step 3: Finish

you now have your worms making compost but make sure to "feed" them with more organic material.
put more worms if you have a big bin!
Vermicomposting is great. Red Wigglers are most gardeners choice. Worm castings are fanstasic for growing plants.

This is a very cool idea. Where do you get the worms?
I got mine from www.redwormcomposting.com. VERY fast, friendly service. Great product! Also refer to his website for overwintering them. He does it successfully.

I got mine at home depot. but if ur home depot doesn't sell red worms i guess ull just have to ask around
 
Most of the time you can do a local search for composting  on the web and find them from a dealer.

I have my worm bin inside all the time. Worms grow faster and I'm more incline to put scraps into it. Theres no smell.

I listened to a broadcast on NPR that talks about red worm composting in-doors in the winter.
