Remember no dairy or meat to keep maggots to a minimum (unless you want them) Also, be careful of non-organic banana peels that may have pesticides on them and I noticed bread tends to mold.
Some people keep their worms in their garage or basement, but I prefer to keep it outside by the garbage can so the various bugs that find it (mostly flies and ants) stay out of my house.

Thanks for the links, both are great... and VERMIPONICS!!! (which can be found at the redwormcomposting site) Wow! Some people are so clever, that is something I am definitely going to keep my eye on as the inventor says it is still in prototype phase.
What I am doing, well I am in Europe right now travelling around living and working at various eco-projects. I will be going next week to Belgium next week for a 6 weeks to help a guy build his low-impact/strawbale dwelling - www.lowimpact.rymenams.org - Very interesting website (lots in english) describing his difficult journey and his vision. So I want, as a side project, to build him a vermicomposter while I'm there. I think, in keeping with the spirit of the place I will build it using small diameter wood found in the surrounding forrest. But other than that I have never done this before a want something attractive ie: no or as little plastic as possible yet low maintenance.
There's actually a quite lengthy thread about vermiponics over at the backyard aquaponics forum.
Check out my Primal Prepper blog where I talk about permaculture, prepping, and the primal lifestyle... all the time!

I am debating whether to use bokashi to dispose of pet waste (yorkie and cat) or to just get a wormery and mix it in there. Has anyone tried both and would recommend either/or to me. It seems that a wormery is cheaper, due to cost of accelerent. Possibly the smell could be bad from the wormery and perhaps not completely decomposed to be safe to handle. I would dillute the product for my flower beds or woodland garden.
Yup, yup, yup. Tiny ad:
