Worm Factory® 360 - The Most Efficient Composting System On The Market Today!
What is worm composting?
Worm composting is an incredibly efficient way to convert kitchen scraps such as newspaper, junk mail, vegetables, fruits, egg shells, coffee grounds, paper and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. Most 'Master Gardeners' consider worm castings to be the very best compost available. Your plants will thrive with this all-natural compost. Sorting out the undigested scraps can be a messy, inconvenient chore with ordinary worm composters.
Why would you want a Worm Factory® 360?
Composting with worms allows you to turn kitchen scraps, paper waste and cardboard into nutrient-rich soil for your plants. The Worm Factory® 360 composting system takes the effort out of composting.
With a thermo siphon air flow design, the Worm Factory® 360 increases the composting speed. Air enters on all four sides of the base exposing the bottom to a free flow of fresh air. Compost creates heat and gases that rise through the system and exit out the 4 sides of the lid. By using worms and this thermo siphon design you can now produce compost much faster than traditional composting methods. Master Gardeners agree, worm castings are one of the richest forms of fertilizers available.
The Worm Factory® 360 can be used indoors or outdoors allowing year round production. Now composting is no longer limited to backyards. The Worm Factory® 360 is odorless making it great for apartments, kitchens, garages, porches and more. The Worm Factory® 360 is the largest home worm composter on the market with it expandable up to 8 trays. This allows more compost capacity while still maintaining the smallest foot print.
Use worms to recycle your waste, create quality compost and create a more sustainable lifestyle. Made in the USA with high quality food grade recycled plastics. 20 Year manufacturers repair or replace warranty.
How The Worm Factory® 360 Works:
Simply add a handful of worms and your organic waste to the bottom tray. The worms will start processing the food. Once the bottom tray is filled with waste add another tray. The worms migrate upward to the newest food source leaving the bottom tray full of nutrient rich compost
As waste is broken down, moisture filters through the system, taking nutrient-rich particles with it. You can drain organic liquid fertilizer right from the spigot.

The Worm Factory® 360 system includes:
4 Stacking Trays
Each tray is 16x16x5 and is made from recycled #2 plastics. The Worm Factory® 360 comes with four trays and can be expanded up to eight trays. Four trays normally provides enough room for the kitchen waste of a family of 4. Each tray averages to be about 12 pounds when full of compost. Optional Add-on trays for expanding to a 6 or 8 tray system available at checkout.
The collection base holds the stacking trays and is strong enough to hold up to 200lb. Air is brought into the system from all 4 sides of the base. It travels upwards with the heat and gasses produced by the compost. Moisture that travels down with gravity is held in the collection tray and can be drained out as liquid fertilizer.

Ventilation "Quick Tips" Lid
Many people believe a lid is necessary to keep the worms from escaping from their Worm Factory® 360. Having a tight lid actually works against your worm composter by restricting air flow. Worms are sensitive to light and will move away from it as quickly as possible. The most important reason to have a lid is to protect the top layer from any light. The Worm Factory® 360 lid provides both air flow and light protection. As an added benefit we have placed the basic instructions on the lid in case your manual becomes lost.
250g Brick of Coconut Coir
A great growing medium and worm bedding material, coir is a byproduct of harvesting coconuts. Coir holds moisture and then releases it slowly allowing worms to keep moist. Once the compost enters your plants or garden any coir that comes along with it is great for growing strong root systems.
Created from a mixture of paper and cardboard, the worm bedding is crushed together and turned into a light fluffy substance that provides fiber for the worms and aerates the compost. The Worm Bedding comes in a brown paper bag that can also be put directly into your Worm Factory® 360.
The spigot allows valuable “worm tea” to be easily drained from the collection base. Once you see the effect of “worm tea” on your plants you won’t be able to get enough.
The included accessory kit provides basic tools to make managing the Worm Factory® 360 easier.
The scraper makes is easy to scrape finished compost out of bins and makes rotating trays much cleaner and easier.
