Overview

Subpod converts household organic waste into a powerhouse of nutrient-rich soil, while doubling as a handsome and hardy garden bench. Subpod creates a safe environment for composting worms and aerobic (odorless) microbes to convert organic household waste into vermicompost. Worms move through the perforations underground, aerating and carrying those nutrients into the surrounding soil, creating an optimal and fertile environment for plants to thrive.

The Subpod can be installed directly into the ground or in an existing raised garden bed. To help speed up the composting process, you can bundle your Subpod with an aerator! An aerator is a special tool used to mix compost. For an "everything-you-need" kit, we have a bundle that includes the Subpod, aerator and a raised bed.

Taking Care of Your Worms

Worms are low maintenance and will be happy as long as they are fed, have enough moisture, and are kept between 40° and 80° F. 

You don't need to feed your worms every day – just add scraps as you have them. Worms can survive up to 2 weeks without any new food. Worms reproduce inside the bin according to their space limitations. They will regulate their own population, so you never need to worry about overcrowding your Subpod.

It is very important that the Subpod is not overfed. Worms prefer to eat their food as it begins to decompose, but not if it has become slimy and smelly. You should not add more than 1" of new scraps at once time, and uneaten food should not exceed 2" deep.

What to Feed your Worms:

Most fruit and vegetable scraps, pulps from juicer
Cooked food
Tea leaves/bags and coffee grounds
Crushed/ground eggshells
Hair, vacuum cleaner dust, soiled paper, tissue, paper towels, shredded egg cartons
Shredded newspaper, cardboard, sawdust (untreated), wood ash
Lawn clippings in small quantities, weeds, clippings, prunings, dirt and leaves

What to Avoid or Limit:

Limit citrus and acidic fruit skin
Limit bread, pasta and other wheat based products
Avoid hard fruit pits
Limit spice foods, onions, garlic and leeks
Limit animal products such as meat, dairy, or fats
Avoid shiny paper
Do not feed rotten food to your worms

 Subpod can also process spicy herbs and peppers, dairy foods and oils, but it’s best to introduce these types of substances slowly, in small pieces, in small amounts at first, and only after your worms are fully established (around three months).
