Easy How To:
1- Poke holes in the top and bottom of your container. The bottom holes let any extra water drain and the top holes let air in. Alternatively, you could just leave your lid off...
2- Put a small layer of rocks or gravel at the bottom of your container. Again, this helps with drainage, especially in Houston where it is so humid!
3- Layer small layers of sand with larger layers of dirt. I wish I had more pictures of this process, but everyone was so involved that my camera didn't have a chance to make it out during the action! Most of our wormeries had two layers of each.
We used bins to let everyone reach the sand and dirt easier:
4. Finish by putting some dead leaves or vegetable scraps on top of the soil. If your dirt and sand were all dry, add a little water to your container as well.
I may share at any of these parties!
