The Worm Studio is a beautiful indoor worm bin that you can use to convert your kitchen scraps into healthy soil in a hygienic way without any hassles or smells. The vertical migration system makes the composting process seamless by removing the need to manually separate the wormies from the castings (fertilizer). You simply feed them your scraps in the upper bin while harvesting the bottom bin to get the castings.
How does it work?
- Start by adding your kitchen scraps to the bottom bin
- When that bin gets full, stack the 2nd bin on top and continue feeding. Once that it full, you add the third bin.
- The wormies finish eating the scraps from the bottom bin and travel upwards through the mesh in search for fresh food, leaving behind their castings
- When the top bin is almost full, it's time to harvest castings
- Simply remove the bottom bin, empty out the contents, and place it on top of your stack and continue feeding
- By continuously rotating the bins, you will get fresh castings every 3-4 months
Should I get 3 bins or 4 bins?
The 3 bin system is good for an average family of 2 and you can feed the wormies 2-3 kg/week. If you have a bigger family or cook at home a lot, you are better suited for getting 4 bins so you can feed the top two bins together about 3-5 kg/week. Don't worry, you can always buy another layer in the future!
You should avoid feeding the wormies meat or dairy (eggshells are okay) because they smell bad during decomposition. Everything else that comes from the earth can go back into it. For more information, refer to our feeding guide you will receive in your order email.
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. Here you can interact with other compost heroes, ask questions and stay motivated in your composting journey. Who's up for a life changing experience?
SUCH a fun way to get our kids interested, and to participate, in the cycle of food production/reproduction. Great opportunity to talk about ecosystems. Our 6 year-old even helped put the composter together—it was that easy.
It's been really cool to see these little creatures do their work. This is such a simple and low maintenance hobby, plus the worm bin itself is really beautiful! Highly recommended.
I love my new Worm Studio! It's been up and running for over a month now and I can't say enough about it. It's easy to assemble, takes up very little space and is great looking. Between the Worm Parenting Guide included with box and the online support group, Akil has taken all the guesswork out vermicomposting. Feeding my worms and checking on their growth is a truly rewarding experience!
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!
I purchased my worm bins in October 2020 and have enjoyed watching my worms at work converting my kitchen scraps into beautiful castings. I have introduced a friend to vermicomposting who got his boxes fro Box of Life too. Akil has been very helpful. He is very knowledgeable and ready to answer my questions. Good luck Akil as you move into your new workspace.
