Pic 0001: Our vermicomposting process is 3-stage. Stage 1 is "Active" and is where we add food waste to a bedding mixture of leaves and horse manure.

Pic 0001a: The bin is cleaned thoroughly and prepared for new bedding material.

Pic 0002: There were some questions as to the construction of the bins. Here you can see the 1/4" mesh that keeps plenty of air circulating and also keeps out critters. I think I misidentified the mesh in an earlier post as being 1/8", but it is actually 1/4".

Pic 0003: Another look at the back side of the bins. 1/4" mesh over 5/4" decking boards spaced 3" apart.

0006: Stage 2 is the "processing stage, where composting food, paper, cardboard, and manure that has been added for 3 months is allowed to be worked thoroughly by the worms.
