Discover Subsurface Composting
Compost to Grow Food
Subpod is designed to be embedded below ground, ideally in a raised vegetable garden, to allow easy access for maintenance and harvesting of compost. Also being positioned amongst your vegetables means you can compost and grow in the same space.
Recondition Your Soil
Think of it as a worm cafeteria. The design of the shell allows worms and microbes to move freely between the module and the surrounding garden bed, aerating the soil and spreading rich nutrients as they move throughout. In little time, the soil is reconditioned and your plants benefit from richer soil 24 hours a day.
Eliminate Pests, Mess & Odour
Below-ground composting naturally keeps the temperature stable all year round, eliminating pests, ugly odours and unsightly mess. This allows for composting in hot and humid environments, where composting would otherwise be difficult and inconsistent.
Scale to Suit Your Space
Need to compost commercial volumes of waste? No problem. The modular design allows units to connect together to expand composting capacity. Subpod systems have been successfully trialed at cafe and resort scale.
How It Works
Simple Installation, Simple maintenance
Step 1: Install
Embed the Subpod system into the soil of your veggie garden, with the top vents above ground. Ideally within a raised garden bed so that the top can be used as a seat.
Step 2: Fill
Fill the Subpod with healthy worms and castings, starter materials and food scraps. Leave worms for 6 days to settle in.
Step 3: Feed & Mix
Feed the Subpod twice a week with food scraps and carbon matter (i.e. leaves, shredded newspaper, grass clippings). Mix the contents with the aerator tool.
Step 4: Spread
Once the Subpod is has filled up, leave it for 10 days to be processed. Then it's time to take out some of the rich compost soil and spread it across your surrounding gardens.
