A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the new “Vermicomposting Planter” project I am working on with my good friend Brian Donaldson, and shared a teaser pic to give you an idea of what the system was going to look like.
Well, as you can probably guess, Brian finished construction on his planter! And it looks fantastic.
I have included several pics below.
As touched on in my other post, I wanted to put more emphasis on optimized worm composting than you see in various other “vermi-gardening” systems, such as Worm Towers and Garden Towers. But I also wanted a planter zone that was big enough to grow more than herbs and ornamentals.
Brian did a fantastic job converting my ideas into a simple – yet elegant – design.
I’m sure some of you are wondering if we are planning to make plans for this system available. Both Brian and myself sell plans for DIY worm bins, so it would make sense to create and sell a set of plans for this one as well.
While we did consider this possibility, in the end we agreed that this is something we want in the hands of as many people as possible! So we are making this available as a 100% free product. Brian (being Brian) ended up recording 28 videos of the construction process and created a set of schematics along with a supply list. All of this will be available via a special members’ area on the Gumroad platform.
Over time we will be sharing a lot more content with subscribers as well – information about my own building experience, actually putting the system to use etc etc.
We are both very excited about this project and hope to get as many people involved as possible!
Stay tuned for more updates (should be launching very soon) and please leave your comments below.
UPDATE – July 5th 2017 – You can now sign up to receive free access to the Vermicomposting Planter specs etc (and please make sure you STAY signed up, since we are only just getting the ball rolling with this project. LOTS more to come).
