Bury it up to top(bottom) of the bucket and move it every year or so.
Some friends in at Trybal Revival Garden in Kalamazoo Michigan have devised a great plan to feed the worms in their garden. The design we had seen in action was a 6 inch tube with holes drilled. But this held only a couple gallons of matter, The new design has the capacity to hold 5 gallons of kitchen scraps.

Thanks to Trybal Revival Gardens.
Enjoy, I plan to build and install one tonight! well.. maybe I will install tomorrow, that's a lot of drilling.
I guess I dont get it. I have worms and I just mix the Chopped up food into the bed in one section of the soil. Why do I need to put the food in a plastic bottle for them to enter and leave? What is the benefit of this?
It's a combination of things.
Digging in the scraps to be composted is work, Trying to avoid that as much as possible.
When the ground is frozen... It's normally not a foot or so down.
The Jugs hold more scraps than I'd be able to compost by digging in bed, especially while I have plants growing.
The worms distribute the nutrients to where the roots are accessing them.
It's a quick and easy way to vermicompost. Certainly not sayin' it's the best.
