How To Set Up Your Hungry Bin
Filling Your Bin
Place moist bedding material in the bin. For best results, place at least 21 gallons of bedding (3/4 Full) into the bin. This is the equivalent of two bags of compost or potting mix. Moisten bedding until it is as wet as a wrung-out sponge.
Add the worms to the top of the bedding material and cover with approximately 1 inch of food scraps (preferably finely chopped). Starting with approximately 2000 adult worms is a good number to start your bin. However, the more worms you start with the faster the bin will reach maximum capacity. A full population is approximately 16,000 worms, or 6.5 lbs of adult worms.
Choose a sheltered, shady spot for the hungry bin – the ideal temperature is between 60-85°F (15-25°C). Avoid extremes of temperature, particularly full sun in summer, as temperatures over 95°F (35°C) may kill the worms. The bin can be kept on a balcony or in a garage or basement if you don’t have a garden. If the bin is outdoors in winter, make sure it is not subjected to freezing conditions for extended periods of time.
