The project outlined in this page is a small and manageable worm bin designed so that kids ages eight to twelve can recreate it, without the help of their parents, following the [[Locally_Delicious_Kids_Worm_Bin_inst|instructions]]. 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!
==Description of final project==
The design is composed of empty half gallon milk or juice cartons. Inside of the cartons is a migration hole that allows worms the access to both cartons. Worms are fed on one side of the bin while castings can be removed from the other carton. This process will be repeated as the worms will migrate towards the food and leave castings behind. Each time the food is digested new bedding is inserted. In addition, this [[Locally_Delicious_Kids_Worm_Bin_inst#Modular_Design|modular design]] allows for expansion of the worm bin to meet the needs for digestion of larger quantities of food.
