We dig earthworms! Without them there would be no plants on the planet!
To see how vermicompost makes plants grow have a look at this slide.
We're no drips we don't use plastic water bottles.

General Can-O-Worms maintenance tips.
Always keep the lid on.
Usually when the top Working tray is full, and active with earthworms, then the bottom Working tray (the first Working tray used) is ready for harvesting.
Harvesting your vermicompost
Lift the bottom Working tray on top of the other two Working trays.
Leave the lid off and expose the vermicompost to bright light.
You want to use the light to drive the remaining earthworms down into the Working tray below.
When they have all moved down remove your full Working tray of vermicompost and apply to your garden or potted plants or where-ever you intend to use it.
Remember, unlike vermitea, vermicompost is not perishable and can be stored for long periods before use.
Once the vermicompost is removed this now empty Working tray becomes the top Working tray.
Replace this Working tray, feed your earthworms and the cycle begins again.
