I am planning on setting up a composting bin around the house. Have the site selected and I will start to make sure the grown is level in a few weeks if we do not get any more snow.

One questions, I a planning on using a stanard compost bin like the Soil Circle Compost Bin, just a circular tube made of plastic with aration on the side adn the top. My question is this. If I added a batch of red worms to the bin would they help the composting process and would they also survive in the heat generated as a result of the normal composting process?
