You can raise worms in a bathtub! Here’s the cheap and easy way I’m starting a backyard worm bin to harvest worm castings, worm tea, and worm leachate.
Thank you Geoff Lawton for the inspiration! You can see Geoff’s video on compost worm farming here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5ozNM-Hb0w
We bought red wigglers, AKA Tiger Worms, from a local bait shop, harvested manure and various compostable materials from our neighborhood, then got an old bathtub for our worm farm, and boom – an afternoon’s project! This simple DIY worm bin lets you harvest worm tea or worm leachate to feed your gardens a highly nutritious free fertilizer.
