The Worm Studio is a beautiful wooden multi-layer worm farm that will convert your kitchen scraps into vermicompost - nature's best fertilizer - in less than a month without smells or bugs! It's true, wormies make great pets. 

📖 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 or 2 homecooks: 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. 

4 people or 2 vegan homecooks: By adding two extra trays, you can triple your composting capacity!

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.

Experimenting & lessons for kids

We bought the box of life hoping to engage our boys (10,14). They enjoyed building the studio together. There was some struggle lining things up but they worked collaboratively and got it figured out.
We have used the parenting your worms book ALOT! it’s been pretty set explanatory thus far.
Idea: we are not going to use bin 2-3 for some time. Wondering if we should have only gotten 1 bin then get our 2-3 bins picked up a year later?
It’s been good so far!

Relaxing and Ecological!

After a few weeks, I still love the concept and having an indoors compost option that smells great! Keep up the good work :)

Worm Studio


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.
