Homemade Worm Bin

You have come to the right place to learn how to make your own homemade worm bin.

Making your own wormbin is the choice of many worm farmers. The whole idea is to reduce waste, right? So making a bin from rehabed totes or buckets makes sense. Not to mention the cost savings.

You can make a worm bin out of a 5 gallon bucket, 10 or 18 gallon tote, an old wooden crate or ammo box, non working refridgerators or freezers or a 55 gallon bucket (just to name a few)Here is a video on how to make a worm bin:

If you go with a Worm Starter Bag there is no need to add soil because in these bags you will have 4-5 pounds of their active bedding. MUCH better than soil. Soil can be totally wrong if too acidic.

Now here are some plans for how to make a 2-3 person (3-4 pounds of worms) Wooden Worm Bin. And here is a book that has LOTs of plans for composters. You can pretty much make any bin work for worms as long as it is protected from sun and predators.
