How do I harvest the compost?

Since the worms eat right under the food layer provided, you can remove that layer and remove the rich humus layer at the bottom of the bin. Check and make sure that any stray worms are added to the removed layer back into the bin once you have harvested the bin. The easiest way of accomplishing this is to put out a sheet of plastic and spread the harvested pile onto it and sift through for the worms.
