When you build worm farm for the first time, you are bound to get a â€œtadâ€ sloppy but once you've done it a couple of times, you would know just how easy the project is. Any DIY project gets easy once you've figured out how to go about it and with some experience thrown in, it should get easy to work it out. A worm farm can be built both indoors and outdoors. The materials used are:
- Three 10 quart plastic containers
- Peat moss, cardboard, newspaper and rotten vegetables and fruits
- A Â¼ inch and a 1/16 inch bit drilling machine
- Red wigglers (around 300)
The Procedure to Build Worm Farm
Take three 10 quart plastic containers and drill around 20 holes in the bottom of each of these containers. This might take some time but is an easy task to accomplish. Similarly drill a few holes on the lid of the container and around 30 holes on the sides of the container.
Prepare the bedding for the worms in the bottom container. The bedding can be prepared using shredded leaves, cardboards and peat moss. Make sure that you add some manure to the bedding. Wet the bedding a little such that it does not go soggy but stays moist. Prepare thin bedding for the other two containers as well. Place the two other containers on top of each other.
Put the wigglers in the bottom most container and add some food to it. The food includes any organic kitchen waste except dairy products like curd and milk. Put this food in the container and then put the other two containers on top of this container. As days pass by, you would see worms coming up from the holes in the second container. The system needs to be placed in a dark place of course because worms are not really comfortable with sunlight.
As the worms move up the second container, the castings in the bottom most container start leaking from the base of the container. Therefore it is advised that you buy a worm bin stand and keep the system suspended. The leakage can then be collected in a container below the bottom most worm bin. Make sure that you keep adding food to the containers at regular intervals of time. The same process is then repeated for the other two containers. In a few weeks, you would have a lot of worm casting to add to your farm.
In order to build worm farm, you need to buy worms. You can buy around 50 full sized worms from pet stores and bait stores for around $3. The rates are not on the higher side and red worms can be purchased for cheap costs. Of course once you have purchased the worms and started the composting, the worms grow in numbers and you can yourself sell some worms off if you want to.
