The idea is to have the bin so close to the source of food that it is more convenient to use.
The outer bucket is used to catch any liquid and corral any worms that might want to wander.
The cost is about $14 from Lowes.
I use the parallel wires to scrape the worm casting from under the worms. That way you don't have to disturb the little fellas while they are working.
When starting your worm bin, use a layer of news paper on the bottom before placing the bedding.
Once you have the worms in place, they generally feed on the top 3 or 4 inches so when you scrape the castings you won't get too many. You can scrape casting about once every 2 weeks if you are feeding regularly.
