What makes a good worm bin better? A series of multiple levels that takes advantage of gravity, making it easy and fun to harvest the super valuable worm juice.

You can spend about a hundred bucks on a fancy commercial worm bin complete with drain spout, or you can build your own home made worm bin for well under half of that and use the left over cash to build a 2nd unit. Why build another one? It might help to experiment with some different kinds of worms to better match your climate, and 2 cups of worm juice is better than one.

The difficult part of outdoor worm bins is finding a warm place to move them in the winter or rigging up some sort of passive solar or electric blanket set up to keep the little rascals from freezing.
