Introduction: Inexpensive Red Worm Compost Bin: Make "Black Gold" Soil With Food Scraps!

About: I love my job as a landscape designer and garden television host and video producer! My specialty is in transforming yards in "real life" as well as on television for garden makeovers. Please follow me & all...

Don't throw away another rotting tomato or lettuce leaf when you can create "black gold" with it! Voracious red worms devour your food scraps, digest it and poop out their castings that make the best garden soil available!

You will need some cute red wiggler worms, a couple of inexpensive paint buckets, lots of rotting food (except for greasy food and meat) some newspaper and a few minutes of your time!

Watch the video and get started on your "vermicomposting" adventure!

Clean and odor free.

If you prefer to read the instructions, please visit my blog, "EdenMakers" for a transcript plus a lot of other garden and garden makeover design ideas!
