Let’s take a look at why this indoor, year-round worm composting system is so awesome:

 

  • The compact design of the Worm Factory 360 makes it easy to use anywhere in your house — mine is in my laundry room.
  • It works to compost your food waste year-round, which means no chilly treks through the snow to the backyard compost bin.
  • It takes less than 15 minutes a week to operate.
  • Vermicomposting uses red wiggler worms to break down food waste, which means the composting process is much faster than in traditional backyard bins (four months vs. two years).
  • It is a tiered vermicomposting system. Each tier has a mesh bottom and stacks on top of the previous one. Once the worms eat everything on the first tier, they will move up through the mesh to the second tier, which means you will never have to manually separate your worms from your compost when it’s time to harvest.
  • The system is expandable and the multi-tray design gives the largest volume of any home worm bin.
  • Worm compost has been proven to have ten times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost.

How Many Worms Will I Need?

 

Most people start their Worm Factory 360 with 1 lb of red wiggler worms.  However, the number of worms required to start a household vermicompost bin depends on how many people are in your family and what types of food you eat.  For example, a family of four who eats a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables will need more worms than a family who eats more pre-packaged foods and fewer fruits and vegetables.  To find out exactly how many worms you will need, you could conduct a family food waste audit like the one outlined on Worm Composting Headquarters.  Basically, you collect all of your allowable food scraps (fruits, vegetables, egg shells, coffee grounds, etc.) in a container for one week, weigh the total amount, and divide the weight by seven days.  Then you will know the average amount of food waste your family creates each day.  Worms can eat half their body weight in food scraps every day.  So, if after conducting your audit you find out your family creates an average of 1 lb of food scraps daily, then you know you will likely need 2 lbs of worms.  However, worms will reproduce in your Worm Factory 360 and your ‘worm herd’ will grow to fit the amount of food you feed them.  So, it’s okay to start with fewer worms than you may need.  Just know that you will have to feed them only some of your food scraps each week until your herd has reached it optimum size.
