Make sure you check out my other worm farm with volume!
The High rise Worm farm
There are three parts to a worm farm,
1 The basement sewer, (that we love to empty for our plants delight)
2 The middle floor bedroom (we sleep too you know)
3 The top floor dining room (food has to be involved)
In this high rise farm the different rooms are separated by individual containers, this is not always the case as you will see from other worm farm in-structables, but is by far the easiest to do the house keeping on.
The Worm farm in this in-structable, was constructed from Polystyrene boxes of the type commonly seen in the back yard of butchers, grocerys and fish shops in New Zealand and Australia.
Step 1: What you Need
Minimum of three polystyrene boxes, (in my case they measure 100cm x 60cm x 60cm with 2cm thick walls with lids and a bead running around the top of the box which meshes with the lids)
-A plastic tap with washer and nut
(Or some means for controlling and dispensing the contents of the basement box) of the
-A cutter of some description
(For cutting the boxes)
-A drill and drill bit to match the external diameter of your tap barrel.
-Bricks or wooden blocks the width of the containers
(Producing sufficient height when stacked to get a bucket under the tap.)
-Two halve bricks or stones
(Extra for weight)
(Shredded white paper, light cardboard or coconut fibre)
-Extra stability (optional)
Step 2: Construction
Take the first container (drawing 2) and drill a hole approx 1cm above the inside base in the center of one end, to fit the shaft of the tap, screw it in to place and place the washer and plastic nut on the inside and tighten, then jack it up on the blocks sufficient that the tap can be accessed.
