Composting with the Worm Factory 360
This is the best Worm Composter I have tried to date.
Composting with worms allows you to turn kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrient-rich soil for your plants. The Worm FactoryŽ 360 composting system makes the entire process quick and easy.
With a thermo siphon air flow design, the Worm Factory 360 increases the composting speed. Now you can produce compost much faster than traditional composting methods. Master Gardeners agree, worm castings are one of the richest forms of fertilizer that you can use.
The Worm FactoryŽ 360 can be used indoors or outdoors allowing year round production. Now composting is no longer limited to backyards. The Worm FactoryŽ 360 is odorless making it great for apartments, kitchens, garages, porches and more.
New Thermo Siphon Design
How it works:
Air enters the base on all four sides
Worms burrow through the compost creating air passages
Rising heat and compost gases create a thermo siphon, pulling the air upwards through the trays
Air exits under all four sides of the lid
Allows 10 times more air circulation than similar composters.
The Worm FactoryŽ 360 has a standard 4-Tray size which is expandable up to 8 trays, giving it the largest volume of any home composter.
Now only 1 step assembly out of the box.
The redesigned lid converts to a handy stand for trays while harvesting the compost
Included instructional DVD with step-by-step guide for managing your Worm FactoryŽ 360.
The accessory kit provides basic tools to make managing the Worm FactoryŽ 360 easier.
10 year warranty.
How It Works:
Simply add a handful of worms and your organic waste to the bottom tray. The worms will start processing the food. Once the bottom tray is filled add another tray. The worms migrate upward to the newest food source leaving the bottom tray full of nutrient-rich compost.
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.
