VermBin Flow-Through Series
The NEW VermBin Flow-Through Series
As many of you will already know, I teamed up with technical illustrator (and DIY building pro), Joe Denial, to create user-friendly DIY plans (with how-to guide) for a flow-through vermicomposting bed known as the “VermBin24” (VB24). The original idea had been to release two more sets of plans for larger versions of this bin (VB48 and VB96), but based on the keen interest in these bigger bins, we’ve instead decided to bundle all the plans together in a single product! Not only will this allow people to get their (virtual) hands on the VB48/VB96 plans sooner than originally scheduled, but also for a fair bit less.
These bins were intended for effective home and/or small-scale commercial vermicomposting. They offer excellent air flow while still retaining moisture, and make the process of harvesting vermicompost (aka “worm castings”) much less of a hassle than with typical “worm bins”. Joe has been using his own VB96 system since late spring and has been thrilled with the results. His huge, thriving population of Red Worms is eagerly processing all the waste materials he can toss at them, and he’s almost ready to plan his first harvesting session!
**Important Notice for all VermBin24 Plans Owners**
Those of you who would like to upgrade your VB24 plans to the VB Series plans will have the opportunity to do so for only $5 (the difference in price between Vb24 plans and VB Series plans). There is absolutely no pressure to do so, of course. If you are content to focus solely on building the VB24 bin that’s great! It’s a pretty substantial bin in its own right, as you will soon see! One of our customers, Neil, has already built his VB24, and has graciously offered to share his experience (with photos) with the rest of us!
**IMPORTANT UPDATE** – Apologies for not updating my update (haha)! As some of you likely noticed, the VB24 plans DID go back on sale – and will continue to be available indefinitely. What I’m NOT so sure about is the VB Series plans bundle. Only time will tell. Bottom-line, we have no immediate plans for releasing that package. Very sorry everyone! There is one bit of “silver lining” on this cloud though, at least for those interested in building the next size up – the VB48. If you double the size of some of the components you are good to go (not hard to figure out once you see the plans), since no additional support components are required (unlike the VB96).
