Adding Bedding to your bin

Compost worm bedding is a type of bedding that is made from paper and coconut coir. The bedding is usually used in worm farms such as vermicomposting.

Compost worm bedding can be made at home by combining paper and water in a container. Let the paper soak and wring it out to the consistency of a wrung-out sponge. Worms will eat the paper and food scraps that you add and produce castings that can be used for gardening or to fertilize plants.
