Soil could work, I know manure and rye flour work ok,
try substituting some perlite or coco fiber if you have any.
It might depend on the type of soil.
Or you could just go buy some verm.
I know there is a soil tek in the grow find section, but i think it involves coffee bean shells, which are hard to find.
some one eslse should know.

I have allways heard that verm on bottom
is recommended, but its not neccasary.
