SMELL FREE, MESS FREE AND STRESS FREE
Natural living made easy

Subpod Mini – the heart of Modbed
Subpod Mini is the heart of Modbed. It's the little sister to the Classic Subpod and is what makes it possible to divert the weekly food waste of up to 4 adults in Modbed!
Subpod Mini sits 90% buried in the soil of Modbed. Compost worms live inside and eat your food scraps rapidly, making no smells or mess in the process! Learn more in the video below.
Powered by nature
If Modbed was a car, the compost worms and microbes that live inside Mini would be the compost engine. Worms feed on your scraps while odourless microbes help speed up the process. Together, they can handle the weekly waste from a household of 4 with ease!
Worms love to explore every inch of your garden, stirring up the soil and “depositing” little chunks of compost as they go. This supercharges your soil and makes growing with Modbed easier than any other garden.
Smell-free, mess-free, stress-free composting
There’s no secrets with Modbed. It makes odourless, natural compost – no electricity or boosters needed. It’s all thanks to the patent-pending design of Subpod Mini.
Pest-resistant ventilation panels keep fresh air blowing in and encourages odourless microbes to speed up the composting process.
Compost worms naturally aerate your system, helping odourless aerobic microbes thrive instead of smelly anaerobic ones.
Unlike traditional systems, where compost needs to sit for 3 months at a time, Subpod Mini composts all year round and you can harvest any time!
Divert the weekly food waste of up to 4 adults
Modbed is compact but it packs a big punch! Our Subpod Mini compost system is rated to compost up to 22lbs of food waste per week.
Our compost systems are one of the easiest, hands-off systems available that can keep up with the food waste from modern homes. Only 5 minutes of maintenance needed a week!
WE GO THE EXTRA MILE
Earth Friendly Design
Subpod products are made with care for the planet. Modbed is made from carbonised FSC Certified timber and protected by
a recycled plastic bottle liner.
Carbonised FSC Certified Wood
Our wood is FSC certified, which meets the highest environmental standards. Instead of nasty chemical treatments, our wood has been carbonised – a form of heat-treatment used in Japan for over 300 years. Carbonising provides natural rot and salt-resistance to wood and even helps deter pests like termites.
Recycled plastic bottle liner
The liner that sits inside Modbed is a woven material made from recycled PET water bottles. Which is great news for the planet, since recycling water bottles uses far fewer resources than creating virgin plastic! Our food-safe liner prevents the soil inside Modbed from rotting the wood or falling out, while filtering any run-off.
Customise your Modbed+ with future growing accessories
Modbed is a true modular product. Its unique channel system
allows accessories to be simply added on for the ultimate small space growing experience, year round.
We know Modbed is a compact garden, and we're already working on solutions to maximise your growing space. Our trellis attachment will double the growing room by
taking your garden vertical.
Greenhouse & Insect Net
Whether you want to grow food in snowy seasons or need to keep insects off your plants, our pest-proof insect net and greenhouse attachments will have you covered. No pun intended.
Not everyone is blessed with sunlight in their small garden, but that won't matter with our LED Grow Lights. Grow food in the middle of winter or on the darkest
balcony on the block!
Do something great for you and the planet 🌎 compost and grow your own!

What is the Modbed made from?
The Modbed+ is made from rot-resistant carbonised FSC certified cedar, and a corrosion-proof alloy frame.
Because we suggest emptying our Caddy every 2-3 days, your scraps don’t need to be left to stand for any time, so our Caddy is the right fit for most.
