There's some material in the archives of this list, and several sites
on the web.  Search the web for 'vermiculture' and 'vermicomposting'.

I have my red worms in a plastic tub in the basement.  I use crumpled
newspaper for bedding and feed them on kitchen garbage (no meat or fats).
The bedding breaks down into somewhat heavy potting soil, and there's
and endless supply of worms of all sizes.
