I recently made a step by step pictorial post of How to Build a Bathtub Worm Farm.  It is really simple to build with recycled materials, and it is broken down into 12 easy steps. The final cost was $44.99, however you can definitely make this worm farm for free with a little extra effort.

Hope this helps!

Cool Project.  When I build my rabbit  barn, I am going to have a big worm bin right under their cages.
A bathtub might just do the trick.

A bathtub would work perfect to collect whatever falls from the rabbit barn! Great idea!

Hubert,
How much leachate drains from your worm bins, what climate are you in, what do you use for feed, and how often do you water them?
