How Subpod Works

Subpod is an in-ground compost system and worm farm.

Compost worms and microbes live inside Subpod and turn all the materials you feed them into rich compost.

Over time, nutrients from the compost will feed your garden soil and help your plants thrive.

No smelly compost around here! The key to healthy compost is air, and with a unique 360-degree ventilation system, your compost will get plenty of that!

"As the global food waste crisis hits people’s radars, innovators are coming up with all kinds of creative solutions. Joining the movement, a team of people in Australia, has dreamed up a novel solution that makes composting food waste easier, quicker and more appealing – and it’s now been launched globally."
"...The Compost Central team has perfected after eight years of development and field testing, The Subpod; a modular composting system for the garden that is simple to assemble and use. In addition to being easy to follow, the project allows you to almost eliminate the manual work required using traditional systems..."

Subpod in Action

Subpod is a vermicomposting system

Vermicomposting

Uses worms to break down food waste much faster than traditional methods, generally in 2 - 3 months. Vermicompost (worm castings or worm manure) is nitrogen rich compost that’s as good for the garden as the traditional stuff. Subpod can compost smaller amounts of waste non-stop, which is a big advantage over traditional systems.

What's the difference?

Traditional composting

A complex biological process that uses a microbes, a specific ratio of carbon to nitrogen and high temperatures. It requires a large pile of organic matter to generate the high temperatures needed to compost the food waste. This can take a lot longer, up to 6 - 9 months, and systems are often exposed, attracting pests and emitting foul smells.

Subpod is like no other...

What makes Subpod unique?

Air Flow

Smelly compost? It’s not something you need to worry about with Subpod. The key to healthy compost is air, and with a unique 360-degree ventilation system, your compost will get plenty of that! Fresh air flows in, and stale air can flow out before it ever turns sour. We designed the size of the Air Flow holes so they could keep out any common pest. Keep your compost smell-free and healthy, with Subpod.

Worm Flow

We believe in living in harmony with nature. Subpod’s unique design lets your worms live in the soil, the way they’re meant to. Underground, your compost worms are safe from the sun and can choose to travel from the life-hub of the Subpod, out into your garden. Just like a forest floor, they will nurture and aerate your garden’s soil, before heading home to eat. Improve your gardens’ health, and grow more veggies, with less work.

In-Ground System

It’s time to bring composting out into the light, and make it a feature of your garden! Say goodbye to those big black compost bins roasting in forgotten corners, Subpod’s in-ground design means it can seamlessly blend in with any environment. Whether it’s resting in your garden ready for harvest, nestled in as a cafe seat helping to clean plates, or subtly hidden under some beautiful ferns, you get to choose how Subpod suits you! No more overheated, ruined compost. Just the fresh stuff - safe in the ground, ready whenever you need it, right where you want it.

"Subpod is one of those wonderful solutions that if enough people implemented this change it would have an enormous impact on our planet"

Damon G

"It's the easiest system you can imagine, even the kids know how to churn the worms"

Courtney Amo

"Composting just got a bit more efficient! I highly recommend this... I'm looking forward to some really good harvest"
