This is a terrific website and full of great information. Reading all the questions and your answers helped answer some of my initial questions and was so helpful in helping me understand about composting dog poop with worms. One question that I still have in getting started is once I set up the bin and add the bedding, would it be best to add a mixture of dog poop and some other food to get things going, or ok to just start adding poop? And do you recommend adding just a small amount at first, or add the amount of food for the number of worms that I start with ( given the ratios that you discuss). Also, I couldn't tell from what I read about composting dog poop if you can just keep adding fresh poop, or do you also need to add fresh bedding along with poop sometimes. Is it ok for castings to continue to build up at the bottom of the bin until the worms and poop get close to the top, or should you harvest the castings sooner so it does not become toxic to the worms?
Thanks so much!!
PS - here is a clever video about how to fold your own poop bag with newspaper if you or your readers are interested...
