To know more about wicking beds and a good explanation on how to properly construct them, then watch the video produced by Mr. Colin Austin called Wicking Bed Video with Katie. Also, Mr. Colin Austin has an excellent website with various other articles to read, calling Wicking Beds with Mr. Colin Austin. The video has answered two questions that have been nagging me that is: 1) why and how to properly use ebb/flow in a wicking bed; 2) an excellent demonstration of how to properly conduct vermiculture farming. The ebb/flow technique used with a wicking bed and nothing like the conventional way of implementing ebb & flow. So, the best way to explain it is to watch the video, which specifically talks about this at video marker 32:00. The video itself is quite long and information so much about wicking beds that it could be an interesting "how they do it" television episode.
