Composting your food waste has never been this simple
The Subpod® in-garden compost system that works with nature, using worms and microbes to compost organic waste without the odours, vermin, mess and hard work of traditional composting.
The Subpod® not only disposes of your organic waste, but is also the ‘growth hub’ for your garden. The movement of worms and microbes between your Subpod® and garden bed builds soil fertility and plant health, allowing you to grow nutrient-dense food at home with ease.
Back Subpod on Kickstarter today. We're LIVE right now :)
Below ground means it is naturally insulated, creating optimal conditions in extreme temperatures.
Uses worms and microbes to convert waste, whilst naturally improving and aerating the soil.
Uses only naturally occurring systems. Requires no power or energy, and very little water to function!
Improves the fertility of your soil, so you can grow healthy vegetables and herbs in your own space.
Designed for interaction
Sturdy, hinged lid doubles as functional bench seating. Feature your compost system in close proximity to your home or workplace.
Modular & Scalable
The modular design of the system means any number of Subpods to be installed side by side, allowing for both small and large scale application.
We've carefully designed the Subpod to be a neat flat packed system, which requires no tools or assembly. A few simple clicks and it's ready to install.

For every 20k people composting, we can divert over 10k tonnes of organic waste from landfill each year, instead producing 400+ tonnes of fresh food
Soil is the life source of our food and plants. When we compost we're feeding and rebuilding the soil - improving its quality, nutrient levels and fertility.
With healthy, nutrient rich soil, which is being constantly fed, we can grow fresh produce all year round, in almost every climatic region globally.
