In Garden Worm Towers
For someone who doesn't want the maintenance of an in-home worm bin, this might be an alternative.
Basically it is a two foot section of pvc pipe, typically 4" in diameter, since that's about the biggest you can get at big box hardware stores, which is drilled for the worms to enter and exit, and capped. You drop food scraps and other kitchen organic waste into the tube, and the worms in your garden bed handle the rest.
Some people take a step up, and use a 2 or 5 gallon bucket.
Now there are opinions that hold that a tube of this size, or even a bucket, do not provide the area for the worms. Steve over on Urban worm company has a well written article on these points. Check the comments out too.
I can see where this would be a more secure way to handle food waste in garden, without attracting pests and rodents, if you put the tube in properly.
How do you handle food waste?
