How Does it Work?
Worm composting in an incredibly efficient way to convert kitchen scraps, junk mail, and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden.
The Worm Factory® 360’s patented, uniquely stackable multi tray design makes it the most efficient and manageable worm bin composter on the market.
Start with just one tray and fill it with your household waste. The worms will begin to convert the waste into compost. When the first tray is full, stack another on top. Each tray has a grid bottom, so worms migrate upward through the system as new food is added.
The Worm Factory® 360’s expandable design and small footprint allow for both indoor and outdoor use. This encourages convenient year-round production of organic fertilizer for your garden.
The grid bottom in each tray allows worms to migrate upward towards the newer food, and improve airflow within the Worm Factory® 360 for faster decomposition.

I have an earlier version of the worm factory and have used it successfully for several years. This new one seems to have solved/included every suggestion for improvement that I had for mine. Now I need another for myself since this one is for my favorite Montessori classroom. If you are interested in worm farming give this a try!Review by Gail12 (on 12/1/12)
I was unsure about getting a worm bin since I am in an apartment, even though I have heard they work well in apartments too, but once I saw this product I thought, it can't be that hard! Indeed, it's not! Even the set up, which I thought would be complicated, wasn't. I have it outside in a cool area, and there is no smell except that of good soil. The only thing that I think needs to be better is the instructional video, and the booklet is a little confusing because it is for this product and another product.Review by Casey (on 6/11/12)
I just started worm composting and did some
research on what to buy. This was a great decision, well built, compact and I am having fun feeding the worms. I would highly recommend it.
After reading Amy Stewart's book The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms, I was immediately taken with the idea of inviting these sweet little beasties into my home, or rather my backyard. Worm castings are great for starting seeds or container gardening of any kind because they are nutritious and help hold moisture in the soil or potting medium. I just scatter my spare castings into my vegetable garden to help improve the soil.
The instructions with this bin will lead you to believe you should microwave your food scraps and chop them up tiny for your worms - but they're being way over-cautious. My worms seem perfectly happy with slightly shredded (all vegetable!) kitchen scraps (non-microwaved!), and the worms are about the lowest-maintenance "pet" I've had. I check on them whenever I add new kitchen scraps, every 3-4 days or so, and they rarely need anything from me beyond their lettuce and melon bits - every couple months some new shredded newspaper seems to be called for - other than that, they just churn out worm castings and take care of kitchen scraps in a pretty effortless way!
The vermicomposting bin has no odor except if you put too many scraps in at once and the worms can't keep up - but that's hardly their fault. Just put in a bit each day and call it good, and you'll have no problem.
