Last year during our Hands-on Permaculture training we built worm towers with the class and installed one in Bill and Becky’s front yard. Once it’s installed all you have to do is add composting worms (red wigglers) and then occasionally add some table scraps. The worms feed on the food waste and in turn, fertilize the garden bed. No muss or fuss with kitchen scraps anymore, it is so incredibly easy to use. The only maintenance that’s needed is to clean out worm castings once a year to make room for more compost.
