How to make a Vermicompost Bin that auto gathers the "tea"

ecochicFebruary 24, 2013

We are looking into making a vermicompost system using the rubbermaid bins and have heard of systems that allow you to auto collect the juices (not sure if this is the tea or if this is leachate) - the simpler the system the better. Does anyone have any suggestions or good sites to understand how to get this done? Thank you in advance!

What comes out the bottom of a worm bin is leachate. A well managed worm bin is when you do not get leachate.
I do not use worm tea but what I understand from reading people's posts here, worm tea needs a lot of oxygen to be potent, hence the air-stone/air pump/ lots of stirring. set up
