A: It comes with enough coir to make the first batch of bedding. You'll need to find another source of bedding material for subsequent trays.
A: It can be used outside if it is out of the elements. Placing it in a garage or shed will be fine. If it's exposed to the wind and rain the trays could get very wet, and if the unit sits for too long in the sun it might get too hot for the worms.
A: The basic unit comes with 2 working trays, not 3. The trays have tunnels to allow the worms to mix between the trays. The worms moving between the trays is how the composter is designed to work. For your project you'd need to block the tunnels at the bottom of the trays to keep the worms from moving - but that would stop the worm tea liquid from draining properly and could drown the worms.
A: Worm tea (compost tea) is the liquid that is released during the compost process. It collects in the reservoir base. It is a great natural fertilizer and can be used for veggie gardens or houseplants. All you'll need to get started is the Red Wiggler worms. The unit comes with OMRI certified coconut fiber to make your first batch of worm bedding.
