About the Worm Factory
Composting with WormsWorm composting is an incredibly efficient way to convert kitchen scraps and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. Americans throw away 34 million tons of food waste into landfills each year, more than any other type of waste (www.EPA.gov). While traditional backyard composting has its place, the process can take up to two years and rotating it can become a chore. Worm composting uses worms to do the work of breaking down waste and is more efficient and easier to manage than a traditional backyard compost pile. Worm compost has been proven to have ten times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost. Worm composting makes it easy to recycle kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrient rich fertilizer for your plants, creating a more sustainable lifestyle.

How it Works
Composting with the Worm Factory uses worms to do the work of breaking down waste and is more efficient and easier to manage than a traditional backyard compost pile. The worms will process and recycle the waste into fine compost full of nutrients. After the first tray is composted the other trays can take as little as a month depending on the waste added.
The nutrient-rich finished compost can be used in your garden, raised beds, container gardens, or on houseplants. Even if you're not a gardener, the Worm Factory helps you reduce your impact and provides an alternative to throwing your waste into the landfill. Each tray has a grid bottom, so worms migrate upward as new food is added.
As waste is broken down, moisture filters through the system, taking nutrient rich particles with it. This makes it possible to harvest organic liquid fertilizer right from the spigot.
