Hi, I want to start doing Composting in my deck but can't spend any money. So if there is anybody with composting containers as well as worms to spare I would appreciate. I can pick it up if it is not to far from Logan Square.
Thank you !!!

  • We are all loaded with Red Wigglers. Have you had them before? You will need a plastic bin (less than $10..get them on sale) with holes in the top (1/4"..can be done with a drill or a hammer and nails.) The bin must not be clear. If you get a bin and do the holes, we can set it up on my front porch and you can take it with you. All that is needed is: shredded newspaper (newspaper not computer paper), water, a hand full of garden dirt..and the worms..all I have. Debbie on Everyblock has lots as well. I'm in the 1800 block of Whipple.
    (remember these worms do not go into a regular compost or the ground; they are not native.) GLAD you are composting!!

    Hi, thank you, I'll get the bins and I'll look for you again to get it set up and to get the worms. Thank you very much.

  • Just get one to start...they multiply very quickly.

    Do you still have loads of worms? I got mites and they ate all my worm babies ☹️

  • Me? Red Wigglers for bin composting? Yes!
    Mites..sad....interested to hear about it...
