We first learned about vermiculture aka worm compost bins when I was pregnant with Big Red! We attended a program through a local county parks program. We learned what worms eat and which ones were the best for composting, Red Wigglers. We got to measure our worms and begin a compost bin. The program coordinator gave each child a plastic tote with a lid. Each tote has pre-drilled holes to allow air flow to occur.
