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 :)

Why Compost?

Divert Waste

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

Rebuild Soil

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.

Grow Food

With healthy, nutrient rich soil, which is being constantly fed, we can grow fresh produce all year round, in almost every climatic region globally.
