The Worm Inn Composter

The easiest way to compost period.

Being made of tough and breathable cordura with a zippered screen top, it is truly revolutionary.

Originally designed by Robyn Crispe, who has an interest in sowing, saw an experimental composter made from an old pair of blue jeans. She realized that she could design a composting system that was both functional and stylish.

One of the questions that I am commonly asked is, "how do I harvest castings from me bins?" The Worm Inn's great design makes this so easy. You simply loosen a drawstring in the bottom and castings come out. The worms stay in the top of the system where there is fresh food so you will not lose them when you harvest.

The Worm Inn is equally at home inside or out. It is important that if it is going to be used outside that it be protected from temperature extremes. It works really well indoors though and does not produce any offensive smells when managed properly. The Worm Inn is particularly forgiving in this regard, especially compared to other worm bins. This is due to its breathable design which prevents any chance of anaerobic conditions.

The Worm Inn is available in Green, Brown, Burgandy, or Camo. Please click on the additional images tabs to see these colors.

The Worm Inn does not come with the pictured shelf or stand but a stand can easily be constructed from pvc if desired.

  • Choose a shady location for your Worm Inn.  Direct Sunlight can easily harm your worms.
  • Hang The Worm Inn.  You can use a laundry stand, a tv tray stand, or purchase the optional stand kit. 
  • Zip ties 
    are included with the kit as they work very well for hanging the (Heavy when full) Unit.
  • Pull the  ropes on the bottom of The Worm Inn, and lock the toggles to close.
  • Place a bowl or a bucket underneath The Worm Inn to catch any moisture drops.
  • Fill the Worm Inn half full with damp fluffed bedding.  You can use damp fluffed newspaper, cardboard,

              Coconut Coir, or even well washed Peat Moss.

  • Add worms (Recommended amounts 1-3 pounds)
  • Add your fruit and vegetable scraps.  As with any composting unit, bury your scraps in the bedding.
  • Water your Inn when it needs water, keeping the bedding damp.  You can water right through the mesh top.
  • When the worms have processed the scraps and the bedding, simply open the toggles on the bottom and

              control the outpout of the castings (Think milking a cow), into a bowl or a bucket.  When you see some unfinished  

              materialsimply pull the toggles shut and put the unfinished scraps back into The Inn for further processing.         

  • As the system settles, the worms move upwards, digesting the microbial waste of the food, which results in 

 Worm castings, a rich fertilizer. These castings (or vermicast) are left below as the worms constantly move

              upwards toward more food.

 

 

 

 

This "continuous flow" of regularly adding food scraps and bedding, and then harvesting the castings from the bottom makes indoor composting practical and FUN for anyone.
