You may have seen those plastic stacking fruit boxes in the trash... I did and decided to give my composting (red wigglers) worms a new home...

Nearly every bit of organic matter that has not gone into our bodies has ended up in our worm boxes. 

Step 1: Materials and Tools

  • plastic stacking fruit boxes
  • cardboard
  • utility knife
  • clothes pins (optional)
  • plastic bag (optional)
  • shovel (optional)
i did not make this exact model but i have tried a few very similar. do you keep the boxes in your basement or outside while they are still composting? i kept mine in the basement so they did not overheat but i seem to have less and less worms everytime i harvest? how many worms do you gain? thank you!
Do you buy whole stock?
Very Clever. I wish I were lucky enough to find these sort of crates. I never see them discarded.
where are all these boxes in trash? Are these boxes trash from grocery stores, or are they used to harvest fruit? Are they like milk crates?
