Starting The Worm Factory 360

Posted on Mar 10 2010 - 5:54am by Mike Lieberman

So I’m giving the worm composting another shot after several unsuccessful attempts at it.

The woman at the Lower East Side Ecology Center who sells me the worms was hesitant to sell me another pound because I’ve killed so many. I let her know about the new bin and she seemed genuinely concerned about my previous experiences.

We chatted a bit more, sold me the worms and said to stop by in a few weeks and she’ll give me some more. Very nice and thoughtful of her.

I got back home and set the Worm Factory up. It’s definitely large and not great for smaller spaces.

I’ll check in in a few days to see if these things are still alive.

    Good luck! I hope this one works better for you. If so, I might give it a try.

    Good luck. Let us know how it goes, and what seems to make the difference.
