Building a Stackable DIY Worm Farm for $30

In my last video on vermicomposting, I went through a simple setup of a single-tote worm bin from Uncle Jim’s Worm Farm. Pretty soon, that bin was full and it was time to redesign the system to be more scalable and easier to work with. A 3-tote stackable system has a few advantages: – Bottom tote can be used for drainage of worm juice – Middle and top bins can be swapped out infinitely – Worms will self-separate from castings, making harvesting castings easy – Can hold way more food scraps and worms Overall, a stackable system is simply better than a single-tote system. This video goes through exactly how to build one, with a few modifications that I made note of in the video. There are probably more ways to improve upon this design as well, so let me know in the comments. So far, it’s working wonderfully though! Making a DIY worm bin adds a ton of extra fertility to your garden and is a great way to make use of food scraps 🙂

NZ Government Classifies Worm Farming as a High Risk Industry … Along with Bee Keeping & Cat Breeding

From TV3 …

” …  the Government has classified worm farming as a “high-risk” industry.

This is what’s known as ‘Nanny State gone mad’.

What makes this even more ridiculous is the Government has deemed sheep, beef and dairy farming low-risk.

Yes, under the proposed law worm farming is listed alongside mining and forestry as high-risk, but most other farming is low-risk.

It simply does not make sense. In the past five years there have been 104 agriculture and farm deaths, but not a single one in worm farming…”
