If you're tired of the mess associated with typical composting methods or have just been afraid to give it a try, the Worm Factory® Composting System is for you! This eco-friendly system allows you to recycle kitchen scraps, junk mail and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost that your plants will love.
When managed correctly, the Worm Factory is odorless, making it the perfect composter for apartments, kitchens, garages and more! Its unique design allows oxygen to flow through the system, discouraging stinky garbage odors.
Start with just the bottom tray and the included bedding material. Add the provided composting worms and start adding fruits, vegetables, grains, paper, egg shells, leaves, coffee grounds and more. Avoid dairy products, meat and citrus items; these can be harmful to the worms and are difficult to compost.
The worms will process and recycle the waste into fine compost full of nutrients. When the first tray is full, stack another on top. Each tray has a grid bottom, so worms migrate upward as new food is added.
Americans throw away 34 million tons of food waste into landfills each year. Traditional backyard composting can take up to two years and rotating it can be a chore. Worm composting lets worms do the work of breaking down waste making it more efficient and easier to manage than a backyard compost pile. What’s more, worm compost has been proven to have ten times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost. The more nutrients that are available to your plants, the larger they grow and the more bountiful your harvest is.
