If you’re not familiar with worm composting, this is an incredibly efficient way to convert kitchen scraps, paper and cardboard into nutrient-rich compost for your garden.
Master gardeners agree that compost produced by worms is the best to help your plants thrive. The Worm Factory DS5TT features a unique stackable, multi-tray to make the most efficient and scalable worm bin composter around.
Worms begin eating waste in the lowest tray, and then migrate upward as food sources in that tray become exhausted. By allowing worms to migrate upward, the worms separate themselves from the finished compost that is ready for the garden. That simple!
Besides the worm castings that are produced through this process, the Worm Factory also produces a second type of nutrient by-product. As waste is broken down, moisture filters through the Worm Factory, taking nutrient-rich particles with it.
This liquid fertilizer, known as leachate is gathered in the special collection tray of the Worm Factory and can easily be collected from the spigot.
Simply add a handful of worms and organic waste to the bottom tray. The worms will start processing the food. Once the bottom tray is filled add another tray. The worms will migrate upward to the newest food source leaving the bottom tray full of nutrient rich compost. The power of worms at its best!
Its compact square design gives the Worm Factory DSTT the smallest footprint of all worm composters. This means that the Worm Factory’s tray stacking system allows it to hold the largest capacity of compost in the smallest amount of space, making it the perfect composter for anyone with space limitations.
The Worm Factory is simple to operate. When full, each tray weighs only 12.5 pounds making lifting and arranging trays effortless. The included 16-page instruction manual makes setup fast and easy and gives tips on how to best manage your Worm Factory composter year-round.

I use the system in a very “low maintenance” fashion and it works well for me.

I haven’t figured out how big the little red worms mouths are, so I’m not sure how small I need to make their bites.
