This sustainable airflow worm bed was designed to provide a
regenerative living environment for the worms as they go through the
process of decomposing food and other organic waste. The bed was
constructed using mostly recycled material for an environmental grant
entitled, "Vermiculture/Composting Demonstration and Re-utilization
Site" in 1994 at the California State Polytechnic University,
Pomona, California. See Disclosure.
The worm bed is 36" high (about waist level),
reducing stress on the back and legs from bending. This worm bed has four removable partitions for easy access for
feeding and harvesting the worms and wormpoop castings (also called Vermicompost).
It allows the person working with the worms to do so with less effort.
It also helps reduce the workload when harvesting the worms.
Adding Vermicompost to soils aids in erosion control, promotes soil
fertility, stimulates healthy root development in plants. This life
cycle is the process of things being born, living, dying, and being
reborn again. This is nature's way of recycling and keeping the earth in
