Similar in design to the popular Worm Factory® 4-Tray Composter (CAD002), The Worm Factory® 360 Recycled Plastic Worm Composter - Black features a thicker, sturdier design with an improved base and lid. This composter can hold up to 8 trays instead of 7, and it includes a handy compost accessory kit, featuring a coir brick, hand rake, scraper, and thermometer, which make maintaining your system cleaner and easier. It even comes with an instruction video that's great for beginners.
The Worm Factory® 360 composter also features new Thermo Siphon Airflow design, which allows air to enter on all four sides of the base, exposing the bottom tray to an endless supply of fresh air without allowing light inside. The lids is also vented on all four sides, which allows the heat and gases generated during composting to continually escape through the top.
Ideal composting conditions occur at temperatures between 45 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. We suggest using your composter outdoors during the summer and indoors during the winter to maximize efficiency. At capacity, this composter can house over 6,000 worms, which can consume 5-8 lbs. of food and paper waste per week.
What is The Worm Factory® 360 and how does it work?
The Worm Factory® is a multi-tray worm composter that helps manage the composting process. Fill each stacking tray with kitchen scraps such as newspaper, junk mail, vegetables, fruits, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper, and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. Many experienced gardeners consider worm castings to be the very best compost available. Your plants will thrive with this all-natural compost.
With ordinary worm composters, sorting out the undigested scraps can be a messy, inconvenient chore. Not with the Worm Factory® 360. In this composter, worms start in the bottom tray and migrate upward as they break down waste. This allows worms to separate themselves from the finished compost, making it easy to access your nutrient-rich fertilizer and add it to plants and gardens without sorting worms. Additionally, nutrient-rich moisture is captured in the collection tray and can be drained, using the spigot, and used to feed plants. This all-natural liquid fertilizer is known as "worm tea."
What are the benefits of using The Worm Factory®?
- The Worm Factory® is Compact:
With its square design and small footprint, The Worm Factory® 360 is a solution for anyone with limited space. This composter uses a tray stacking system that allows it to hold the largest capacity of compost in the smallest amount of space.
- The Worm Factory® 360 is Odorless:
The vented lid and base allow proper air flow, and the detailed instruction manual helps you correctly manage your Worm Factory® 360 to prevent odor. Odorless functionality means you can use your Worm Factory® year round, housing it anywhere, including apartments, kitchens, garages, porches, or other convenient areas.
- The Worm Factory® is Easy to Manage:
The 16-page instruction manual ensures fast, easy setup and provides detailed instructions on all-season management. Each tray holds 12.5 lbs. of compost, which makes lifting and arranging trays effortless. The ventilation lid also contains a list of composting tips for quick, convenient reference.
- The Worm Factory® Saves Time:
Let The Worm Factory® do the work for you! Instead of spending time turning piles of compost and removing worms by hand, the multi-tray system separates the worms from the compost so you don't have to. Also, because the worms continually eat through your kitchen scraps and junk mail, nutrient-rich compost is produced at a faster rate than traditional ways of composting. In full operation, the Worm Factory® houses over 6,000 worms and consumes 5 to 8 lbs. of food a week, allowing you to harvest a full tray of nutrient-rich castings every month. This allows you to bring rich, dark compost to your plants and gardens at a faster rate.
