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)

Step 4: Transfer the worms

We already have two very active and healthy worm boxes so I transferred the worms and muck into their new home.

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?
