Made with ❤️ in Ottawa (Odawa), the traditional, unceded territory of the Algonquin and Anishinabek

The Worm Studio is a beautiful cedar worm farm that will convert your kitchen scraps into vermicompost - nature's best fertilizer - in less than a month without smells or bugs! Have you heard this one before - wormies make great pets! No seriously, they're adorbs, smell free, quiet, and don't require much maintenance. We're here to support you as a new worm parent. 

Ottawa customers - add composting worms to your order from us using this link

Non-Ottawa customers -  we don't ship the worms as it stresses them. We recommend finding them locally on Kijiji or a local worm farmer using this link. 


📖 It can seem overwhelming, but we will teach you how to build a successful composting habit

 🌎 Sustainable materials - local cedar ethically harvested

👃🏽 No bad smells

💪🏽 Easily harvest castings without separating out the worms

🤓 Life time access to our online community for support and motivation

🧘‍♂️ Nature therapy - take care of a tiny living ecosystem

👨‍👩‍👦 Fun family activity and a way to teach kids about the environment

  

How it works

  1. You start feeding the bottom tray and work your way up through the layer
  2. The wormies finish eating the bottom tray and travel upwards in search for fresh food, leaving behind their castings
  3. When your top layer is full, remove the bottom layer, empty out the castings, and add it to the top of your stack
  4. Rotate your bins every 3-4 months to get fresh castings

The castings will be free of worms as they all have moved to the upper layers to eat. 

Should I add extra trays?

1-2 people: The Worm Studio comes with 3 trays as standard composting option for the average couple that generates 2-3 kg of scraps each week. 

3 people: The benefit of adding one extra tray is that you get to feed tray 3 and 4 at the same time, effectively doubling your composting ability to 3-4 kg each week. 


You can buy another layer in the future.


The Worm Studio is sold disassembled and requires a screwdriver to assemble. It's easier than IKEA, we promise.

Your order includes instructions and access to our online community where you can ask questions, interact with other compost heroes, and stay motivated in your composting journey.

Fun way to reduce waste

I live in an apartment building that does not have a compost bins. It always bothered me throwing food waste down the garbage chute. The Box of Life was the perfect solution to this. I got my boxes about 6 months ago and my worms seems to be doing well. I was skeptical at first that there would be no foul odour from decaying food scraps and I can confirm that you will only have a faint earthy aroma in its immediate vicinity. Again, this was a concern of mind living in a 1bdrm apartment, but I have zero complaints. I keep my box in my closet with my jackets and shoes and I have had zero issues. I'm looking forward to harvesting some castings in the spring and add them to my balcony garden.

Love it

The bin is super chic and minimalist compared to others on the market. I love the lack of plastic in the product. Instruction manual is easy to understand and helpful. A great product overall!

A bright spot of my every day

I purchased the box of life on a recommendation from a friend who purchased it a few months earlier. I've had the box for just around 12 months now. At first I thought it might be another hobby I pick up and neglect. Boy was I wrong. I get so much joy out of feeding the worms and seeing them progress and the population explode. Once you find the optimal conditions and understand their needs it's as addicting as growing houseplants. I love my box of life!

Akil and the team provide you with everything you need to get started and build a effective home composting system and all the support you could ever ask for. Sometimes I will open the lid of my box just to smell that fresh earth. I love the commitment to the environment with its sustainably sourced materials and zero waste manufacturing. I love knowing I've supported a hyper local business with a owner who is committed to living his values and being a productive and inspiring member of the community I live in. I hope this helps encourage others to give this product a try.

Love my little wiggle munchers! they are so cute and make me so happy. Also love that they reduce the food waste since our industrial kitchen produces sooo much, anything we can divert from landfill is a win!
