Dear Ellen,

Question: How do you remove the compost to use in planters without removing the worm as well? In my worm bin I try to take out compost and with every handful there are worms with it. It would be extremely difficult and tedious to remove worms one by one. Any advice would be helpful.

Dear Dawn,

Hi Dawn, Just remove the finished compost with the worms in it, and use it. If you find any big clumps of worms, put them back in the bin. There is no reason to try to remove all the worms from the compost that you are harvesting--your worm bin has plenty of worms to spare, and the worms are good for your plants. Ellen

Environmentally yours,
