Bin diagram explanation

The bin shown measures 60cm x 90cm x 30cm high and is big enough for 4–6 worms. The lid should keep out light and have air holes. The bin floor has mesh covered holes to let water drain away. The floor should be a cool, moist soil environment consisting of soil, shredded paper, grass clippings, and animal manure. Worms should be fed once or twice a week with finely chopped kitchen scraps and be given crushed eggshells at least once weekly. Temperature range for worms 13–25°C.
