Additional Information

NEW | Worm Composter Transforms Vegetable Scraps into Valuable Fertilizer

  • Attractive kit for making your own worm compost
  • Easy; no fuss, no mess
  • Make super-nutritious compost and compost tea
  • Keep food scraps out of the landfill
  • Worms sold separately

Let worms do the work, transforming your food scraps into nutrient-rich fertilizer. It's a fun project that's good for the earth, too, by keeping food scraps out of the landfill. The stylish shape and choice of colors make the Worm Farm Composter at home in a kitchen, mudroom, hallway or pantry. Once the process gets underway you can add up to a half pound of scraps per day to the worm composter, about the average food waste for a family of four. When setting up your worm composter keep in mind that 68 degrees F. is the ideal temperature.

The Worm Farm Composter comes with two trays. When the bottom one fills up, the worms move up to the top tray. Allow the compost in the bottom tray to mature for about a month while you add your food scraps to the top tray. Empty the finished compost and repeat the process as necessary. Use the spigot on the bottom to dispense nutrient-rich compost tea for use on houseplants and garden plants.

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

I got this for xmas and was very excited to start composting. Within a few days I started seeing dead worms outside of the worm bin. It's now been several months since setting it up and I've lost about 50 worms. I am going to get a new worm bin that doesn't have this problem.

Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

I received this worm farm for Christmas(I did ask for one). It was easy to assemble and looks cute in the kitchen. Despite following directions: moistened shredded paper and cardboard, and kitchen scraps for worms, I am disappointed that they can crawl out between the layers of the bins. adding water to the bottom bin is a good idea as one previous reviewer suggested. In the mean time I have added window dealer along the edges of the bins to help keep them in, although it does worry me if that allows for enough air circulation. There are air holes on the top bin that allows air in so I can only hope enough. I would rather find ways to keep them in than have them crawl out only to die on my kitchen floor. I really wanted to like this worm farm but unfortunately can not recommend it.

      Comments about : Worm Farm Composter:

      Love this! It is sturdy, nicely compact & odor free. No leaks from the tap at the bottom (Warning: it took quite a bit of elbow grease to screw it in). When I lift the sections to add ingredients, it's a terrifically fun version of an Indiana Jones scene with worms hanging out if the bottom holes. A suggestion for improvement is to rework the filter screening the bottom tank. The two tabs at either end must have been very tasty, as the few worms that made it down to that level devoured them in no time flat. Now I have to use a screwdriver to pry it out. I do recommend that you keep some water in the bottom. I found several worms down there that seemed to have taken a little dip & were climbing their way back up to the good stuff. Without that reservoir of water, they may have dried up en route. All in all, very cool!

            it arrived intact. Well made. much stronger than I imagined. Even my friends are asking for reviews of it as are interested in possibly doing it.

              I purchased the Eco-co Coir bricks to use with this worm bin. The worms arrived ~ 1 week after the bin so I had time to assemble and prepare the bin. The cloth screen did have several puncture holes when I unpacked the box but customer service sent me a new one immediately. I add kitchen scraps and the worms appear to be doing well so far - very few are trying to escape out the bottom. The design is great and I really like the green color.

                  I love the product, but more importantly, my worms seem to be very happy. I give them a handful of kitchen scraps every couple of weeks. I have not had it long enough yet nor do I have enough worms yet to produce their own dirt, but it's fun to dig around and find them very lively. Love the product and I think kids would love it too. Very easy to setup. I haven't noticed any bad odors and it's easy to work with and keep clean.
