Supplies Needed for a Worm Bin

1) One 14 by 20 inch or so dark plastic (not clear plastic) storage bin with lid

2)  Another storage container that this first plastic storage bin will fit into or a foil turkey cooking pan that your bin can be set in.

3)  Newspapers to shred for bedding (no glossy sections but the comics are okay!)

The first storage bin, which will contain the worms and their bedding, needs to have drainage holes drilled into it. We will have a couple of drills on hand if you are not able to make about 15 to 20 one-quarter inch holes on the bottom of the container for drainage (worm tea) and about the same on the sides for air.
