This Amazing Waste-to-Resources System Uses A Simple Bucket To Turn Your Trash Into Black Gold.
Check out the article and instructions I wrote for Marjory Wildcraft of the GROW Network on how to construct this very vermicompost system.
For those who are having a hard time finding the materials needed, I have included Amazon links to the left: (Full Disclosure: I earn a very small commission from Amazon if you choose to click the links provided -there is no additional cost to you). Try getting free five gallon buckets at your local bakery (frosting buckets), hamburger joints (pickle buckets), and Car Washes (Soap Buckets). Make sure the buckets are "food grade" and didn't once contain some nasty chemical. The PVC pipe can be found at any hardware store.
UPDATE: "Grit Guards" can be quite expensive so I devised a $1 alternative. I've thoroughly tested it and it holds its structural integrity.
I went to the local Dollar Store and purchased a thin plastic cutting board (pack of 2).
You'll need to cut out the following pieces from the flimsy plastic cutting board:
(2) - 2.5" x 10"
(4) - 2.5" x 8"
Remember, Good Planets Are Hard To Find!
