An avid worm farmer himself, Huckleberry has developed several different vermicompost bin designs to meet the needs of today’s backyard gardeners and homesteaders. Wood works best! Huckleberry’s opinion? Don’t waste money on plastic worm bins. Listen to a voice of experience, having answered numerous calls from people who suffocated their worm colonies in plastic worm bins. Worms need air! Wood is perfect. Huckleberry can work with your unique needs to create a custom vermicompost system just for you. In addition he can build you a backyard biochar maker and teach you how to use it. One of the best ways to use biochar is inoculated with actively-aerated vermicompost tea. Huckleberry can teach all these techniques in a day or weekend workshop, or he can set a system up for you, or draw up a design so you can do it yourself.
This is the deluxe double-sided chicken feeder model with roof. The homesteader feeds compost to the chickens on the open lids. The chickens eat and scratch and the remains fall into the bin…with added chicken manure, a big plus!
A triple flat model doubles as an even nicer (longer) bench for your garden or orchard. Just as easy to harvest castings. Just bigger.
Worm bins are nurseries and sanctuary for diverse composting organisms. For best results, locate worm bins next to sheet-mulched gardens. Bye-bye rototiller. Bye-bye expensive soil nutrients. Bye-bye hard work. Worms work better.
This is magic for your plants and trees. No more pests. Get ready for vibrant healthy robust glowing gardens, nurseries, orchards…. We’re talking serious nutrition. Happy.
