Step 1: Getting Started
Two plastic bins, one with lid.
(You should assess how much compost you will generate on a monthly basis to determine capacity. We’ve used 15 gallon Rubbermaid bins in anticipation of expanding our system.
One tray (to place under stacked bins as liquid catchment)
*Third bin or lid can be substituted for tray
Drill and 3/8” hole bit
Two food containers i.e:) yogurt or cottage cheese containers
Approximately one quart of dried leaves or mulch from yard
Few sheets of newspaper (no color ink)
Approximately one quart of soil
Couple dozen red wigglers (Eisenia foetida)
