Composting made simple, beautiful and wormy
Yup, wormy. That's our nickname for the cute wigglers that are munching down on kitchen waste in thousands of homes across the country.
Vermicomposting is a clean, quick and fun type of composting, and we build beautiful worm farms for your home and help you build a composting habit for life.
MEET THE WORM STUDIO
feedback from our community
Liz, new worm momma
I have enjoyed the process of being a new Worm Studio owner! Akil was so helpful at pick up, reminding me of the online platform for newbie questions. The box itself is solid once built, I use it as a plant table between checking and feeding it. It has been a learning process to find a balance of moitsure level and food timing but my box and little worms are coming along after just a couple months! Can't wait to be able to fertilize my plants/ garden with castings this summer.

I bought this for my science class about nutrient recycling...the students are really enjoying it. They check on the worms quite often.
Chelsea, mama to happy plants
I got my box 6 months ago and so enjoy my weekly ritual of feeding and tending to this amazing little ecosystem! House guests are always so intrigued by the cool box in our kitchen and are surprised to learn that it's full of worms and compost! There's no smell (other than earthy aroma when opening the lid, which is lovely). Almost ready to make my first harvest, and so excited to see how my plants do with vermicompst. Akil is not only selling a product, he's building a community and championing for small actions that have big impacts!
GOOD FOR YOU, BETTER FOR THE PLANET
IT'S LIKE MAGIC!
Your food scraps will literally be transformed in front of your eyes! It takes the wormies about 30 days to fully break down your organic material into a living soil amendment that's really amazing for your plants.
WHAT IS VERMI-COMPOSTING?
HI, I'M AKIL!
I created The Box of Life because I believe that the humble composting earthworm can reshape our relationship with food waste and rekindle our love for nature in the urban world.
