Worm Bins

What is the ideal worm bin?

Any container that breathes and keeps the worms inside can be used.

What will work?

A box made of wood or a plastic box with air holes work well. I find that a 15-25 gallon plastic storage box works well for a typical family of 3-5 people. See my instructions below to make your own worm bin.
