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 a family of 2 and you can feed the wormies 2-3 kg of scraps a week. If you have a bigger family or cook at home a lot, you are better suited for getting 4 bins that can take 3-5 kg scraps a week.
You should not feed the wormies meat or dairy (eggshells are allowed). 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 so easy that a group of 12 year olds could assemble it.

I love it!!! Very easy to use, doesn't smell, and looks nice too ❤️
My kids even like to help feed "the wormies" 😉
I'm a huge supporter of Akil's initiative to reduce food waste, bring people closer to their waste, and creating a circular economy within your household and your city. I've been fascinated to learn about the worm's ecosystem, what kind of environment they prefer, what kinds of food they prefer, how to balance other criters in the bin, moisture, brown material vs green material ratios, etc. It's been a lot of guessing and experimenting, and I've surprised myself dedicating a lot more time, energy and effort to the cause than I initially thought was necessary. But, I truly love it. Akil's business model, his purpose, are true. They are authentic and it gives me a profound sense of accomplishment and pride to own a Worm Café from The Box of Life, even though I continue to learn everyday, fail and succeed unconsistently. I love what it represents and feel great about the investment. Can't wait to have homegrown fertilizer to feed all my plants! Thank you Akil, much love.
Beautiful wood, smells nice, looks nice, works very well. The worms are happy
It was absolutely fascinating to set up a whole new ecosystem at home, learn to nourish it, and watch the wrigglers transform day-to-day fruit and vegetable scraps into rich compost!
I love my beautiful worm studio. It sits in my kitchen and is absolutely odourless. Akil makes it fun and easy to learn about vermicomposting.
