    Made 12 worm feeding towers and introducing worms into the garden... One Tower per plant bed, 12 beds in all.
    you put work feed into them and the worms will multiply going off worm casting and making for a healthy garden...

    Worm food: horse manure, plants, veggies, anything good the worms will eat.

    The worm towers get berried in the ground with the top three inches above ground. The worms travel through the holes in the buckets.

    Looks like a commercial operation. That’s a crazy amount of work you put in but it should pay off when it starts producing.
