Raising Worms for Castings - Part 2

$27
4-5 Hours
Easy

In this post, we discuss how Eddie and I got passed the first worm disaster, and instead, opted for building and installing a worm tower in the garden. The goal was to have 100s & 100s of red wigglers eating our kitchen scraps to generate a wonderfully nutritious fertilizer for our veggie garden. But we didn't want to have to deal with their poo. We also wanted them in their natural habitat (in the ground)
