Start with just the bottom tray and bedding material included. Add 1lb of composting worms and start filling the tray with household waste. This makes it possible to harvest organic liquid fertilizer right from the spigot. Adding Food & Waste: Adding household waste to the Worm Factory 360 is easy; just open the lid and toss the food in. Fruits, vegetables, grains, paper, egg shells, leaves, coffee grounds and more can be added. Three foods to avoid are diary, meat, and citrus items; these can be harmful to the worms and are difficult to compost. Feed your worms about 50% food scraps and 50% fiber and paper. This creates the optimal environment for worms and finished compost. The goal is to recycle what you usually throw away.
