How to Make a Worm Composting Bin -- Really!

And now for something completely different...

This past term, while wrapping up my MBA at Willamette University, I worked with a group that examined the possibilities for composting in the university's food service. It was an interesting project in which we ultimately recommended the university contract with a local company in order to reuse 100 percent of Willamette's food waste, which the company would haul away and use as "fuel" for its large-scale worm composting operation.

Anyway, my daughter Alison just arrived home from college and shared this FUN video of a couple of guys -- the Enviro-Mentals -- and their quest to build a handy worm composting bin. So if you're into sustainability or just gardening and finding a use for all those daily food scraps, enjoy this humorous and helpful video.


p.s. One of these guys -- Hal Brindley -- also has a very cool website that shows off his wildlife photography!
