Worm Composter

Put nature to work for you with easy and efficient worm composting. All of your kitchen waste, waste paper and cardboard packages will be transformed into fertile compost, ready for your garden plants. Experienced gardeners say that worms make the best compost available for amazing results with your flowers and vegetables. This composter offers an innovative design with multiple stacking trays for maximum efficiency. Worms start the compost process in the bottom tray, then head upwards when their work is complete, leaving the lower tray worm-free and ready to use. The main product of this process is fertile worm castings, but another byproduct is a nutrient rich liquid called leachate which collects in a collection tray and can be accessed through a drain valve.
Just place the little workers in the bottom tray with your organic materials and let them go to work for you. Then add more trays when the first one is filled. Remove the lower tray and collect the fertilizer and then start the process all over again. The composter is compact and easily fits in any home while holding the maximum capacity of materials. The trays are lightweight and easy to move. A complete guide comes with the Worm Factory and will help you get the most out of your compost maker.

Product Details

  • Composed of recycled post-consumer plastic
  • Measures 16 square inches and 13 inches deep
  • Features an easily accessed liquid fertilizer collector
  • Works in summer or winter
  • Stack up to 7 trays for fast composting

How to make a small effective compost bin?

HI 🙂 I’ve been planning to make a compost bin for a while now, but this week I finally have the time to do it! Problem is, that I’m not sure what kind of bin would be the best choice for a relatively small garden. I’ve read quite a few pages on the internet, but they all seem to be saying different things. If anyone has a compost bin or atleast knows what one would be the simplest, quickest, but effective option to make (OR BUY) please let me know 🙂
Thanks loads!
