Worm Factory 360 Composting Review

We have wanted to set up a composter for a bit now.  We saw the Worm Factory 360, which is fast acting, small, works year round, and is easy to maintain.  It’s very easy to set up, and odorless in operation.

This operation requires worms, but not just any worms, Red Wiggler Worms are the best for composting.  As I didn’t know where to find these guys locally, I got the setup with the worms.  I was surprised how many worms it took to make that pound.

The Worm Factory 360 is 18″ L x 18″ W x 24″ H. Making it great for almost any location!

This is so easy to do and setup, my 3 year old son loved helping! He learned what can be composted, how it works, and he got to play with a few worms.  Now whenever I crack an egg or have a scrap of vegetable he tells me the worms are hungry and I should feed them.

I made a video journal with how the setup works.  I found the directions were thorough and easy to follow for someone who isn’t sure how this works.  Here are the best clips:

The first tray will take about 3 months to be fully composted by the worms. After the first tray, you can harvest compost monthly. This compost can then be used in your garden, raised beds, planters, houseplants and more.  Compost not only is a great way to recycle but it adds vital nutrients your soil would not necessarily get otherwise, help it hold moisture longer, and promotes healthy plant growth.

Did you know?

  • The Worms can survive up to 2 weeks without any new food.
  • If you begin with 1 lb of worms, like I did, they can eat half a pound of food each day!
  • Composting is usually smelly but the air flow design in this system discourages stinky garbage odors making this great for apartments, kitchens, condos, garages, porches…

What Can I Compost?

No Meat or Dairy Products

  • Coffee Grinds
  • Vegetable Scraps
  • Egg Shells
  • Newspaper – the non glossy pages
  • Cardboard
  • Leaves
  • Grains
  • Fruit

Please note the system arrives with a card to order your worms which are then shipped separately.  You should plan to be home the day they arrive.

This is available from Earth Easy.

  • I think this is wonderful, I think everyone should be doing this to help give back to the planet, I love how this system make it so easy for you to participate in composting

  • I would love to use this with my two girls (ages 2 and 4). They love nature and creatures, so I’m sure they would love to have a pet worm colony to feed and to feed our compost to our garden. I never knew you could’t compost dairy products! Good to know.

  • I didn’t realize you could leave the worms up to two weeks without introducing any new food. I was concerned I would need worm sitters when I went on vacation.

  • I need this so much, we tried to make a worm bin from a youtube video and it was terrible. Right now i buy worm casing to make compost tea, but this would be so much easier and definitely cheaper.

  • I hadn’t seen this composting system before. I added it to my Amazon wish list!

  • I have a good spot for this. I want a good compost bin so bad, I would love to try this one out. I used to have horses and a never ending supply of old manure. Now I do not and I miss that compost. As do the flowers and veggies. I could put this in our garage. It does not get below freezing in there and I suppose it would do fine.

  • I would compost my garden refuse…and scraps from the house..

    this would be a blessing on our farm thank you!!!

  • In our backyard we have a movable composter and stationary compost bin. In the winter though our composting efforts come to a halt because it’s just too darn cold and snowy to haul our scraps outdoors. My current vermicomposter is so small it can’t keep up with all the scraps we produce. I love that this worm compost bin is stylish, reduces odors and makes up to a pound of compost a day once it’s working full bore!

  • So do you keep this inside in the winter? And I wonder if this is small enough to fit under the kitchen sink? I already have an outside compost heap and keep a bucket under the sink but this would be great if you could have it inside and make compost all year long.

    • It would be challenging to get it through my cupboard doors, otherwise it would fit under my kitchen sink. I’m leaving mine on our covered deck and were going to wrap it once it gets cold. You could put it in a closet.

    Would love to try this!

  • I am really hoping I win this. Thanks for showing how simple it is to set up.

  • This is the coolest thing! I didn’t know there was an all-in-one composting product like this. I just moved to a new house and would love to start composting.

  • I’ve looked at the Worm Factory for years, and after learning what a great fertilizer it would be for my tomatoes, I’m convinced.

  • I’ve never done composting before, but just started an herb garden last year–I’d love to start!

  • I would like to convert my kitchen and yard waste into rich compost for my flowers.
