Why the Worm Factory® 360 Worm Bin?

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. In addition, its compact design makes it perfect for use in any household.

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 by recycling and improving soil quality. The Worm Factory® 360 houses thousands of composting worms in a compact space. The worms work 24/7 to efficiently produce highly beneficial, rich compost packed with microbes and water soluble plant nutrients.

This eliminates all the work of traditional composting and yields a much more valuable end product. Worm compost has been proven to have ten times the nutrients of traditional backyard compost. The more nutrients that are available to your plants, the larger they grow and the more bountiful your harvest is. This system allows you to enjoy ORGANIC vegetables, fruits, and flowers grown with the help of your kitchen scraps.

How does the Worm Factory® 360 work?

The patented Worm Factory® 360 is easy to set up and use. Simply add a handful of worms and your organic waste to the bottom tray of the worm bin. 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. It is important to note that worms are living creatures, and cannot tolerate extreme temperatures. We recommend that you keep the Worm Factory® between 40 and 80 degrees.

The Worm Factory® 360 is simple to set up and operate.
Managing your Worm Factory® 360 takes less than 15 minutes a week.

Included with each Worm Factory® 360 are a comprehensive instruction guide and DVD that make setup easy and give detailed tips on how to best manage your new Worm Factory® 360 year‐round.

Start with just the bottom tray and bedding material included.

Add 1lb of composting worms and start filling the tray with household waste. The worms will process and recycle the waste into fine compost full of nutrients. When the first tray is full, stack another on top. Each tray has a grid bottom, so worms migrate upward as new food is added.

Don't worry about feeding your worms every day. Some people feed them a handful a week; some people feed them a handful a day. The general rule of thumb is worms can eat about half their weight in food per day.  This means that if you start with 1 lb of worms, they can eat a half pound of food per day. Worms can survive up to two weeks without any additional food. Just feed them a bit extra before going on long vacations.

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.

Composting is no longer limited to the warm months. The Worm Factory can be used indoors or outdoors, allowing year round operation. Because of its unique oxygenating design, the Worm 360, when managed correctly, is odorless.
The first tray will take about three months to become fully composted by the worms. After the first tray is composted, the other trays can take as little as a month, depending on the waste added. Once you harvest your finished compost from the bottom tray, you will have an empty tray to stack on top for more compost to be made.
