==Abstract==
[[Locally Delicious]] is an organization based in Humboldt County with a commitment to raising awareness of the importance of community and sustainable living. [[Locally Delicious]] and Humboldt State University's [[Engr215 Introduction to Design]] class collaborated on a series of projects in the Spring of 2011. These projects are geared to help raise awareness of the importance of living and eating healthy, especially among children, and will be published in Locally Delicious' upcoming book, "Lunch box Envy." The design outlined in this page is a worm bin designed for kids ages eight to twelve constructed by the Engineering 215 design team Onycophora. The design of the worm bin fills Onychophora’s the designers’ objectives of engineering a small and manageable worm bin that can be recreated and used by children between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.
The bin can be constructed by kids without the help of their parents following the [[Locally_Delicious_Kids_Worm_Bin_inst|instructions we developed]]. Giving a child the opportunity to build a worm bin enables them to get hands-on experience with composting and sustainable living, and allows them to see waste transformed into something useful!
After the projects have been finished and released, material regarding the details of the various projects will be compiled and published tentatively due out Fall 2011. The design outlined below is a product of [[Onycophora]], a group of the Introduction to Design [[Engr215]] students.

==Background==
The "Wormland" worm bin is specifically designed for children ages eight to twelve, and therefore follows a unique set of considerations. In the design of this bin size, cost, and the ability of the child were all taken into account. The final design consists of various materials found in every home and drugstore. Old milk cartons and tape make up the design, and scissors and a pencil are the only tools required for assembly. The finished design will be able to process roughly a handful of organic material per week with proper maintenance, as described in our building instructions.
