What others say
« One of the best things about the design of the WormBag is that it flows continuously. This provides better aeration for the soil while also simplifying the overall composting procedure. This is one thing that you will appreciate if you are a beginner. With the bedding in place, you will add the food scraps on the top and the castings will flow to the bottom. »
« This worm farm has an unusual hanging bag design. Let’s be honest, it looks like a backpack on stilts. And so it’s not immediately recognizable as a worm farm. Don’t let it’s odd appearance fool you. You can tell a lot of effort has gone into creating a quality product. »
« I love my urban worm bag and think it’s the perfect solution for anyone who wants a fuss-free experience. It was easy to set up, easy to feed the worms and easy to harvest the castings. »

COMPOSTWORMS ARE QUICK AND CAPABLE WORKERS
Vermicomposting is a fast and efficient way of composting. Earthworms can eat up to half of their bodyweight of organic matter – per day! They digest kitchenscraps and produce the world’s best fertilizer. Worm humus contains a lot of important nutrients like phosphor or nitrogen, which your plants will love. With a single WormBag, you can convert up to 2kg of organic waste per day.
COMPOSTING WORKS EVERYWHERE!
The WormBag makes composting possible everywhere e.g.:
- in a (small) garden,
- a carport or
- inside your garage.
It impresses with a neutral design and compact format:
- It takes up little space (66x66x81cm),
- is easy to use and
- you can harvest your first humus after just 6 months.
The WormBag makes composting child’s play!
« I am absolutely in love with this product. I don’t have that much room, and the bin doesn’t take up that much space…around 0,3m². But the volume is huge – much bigger than the stackable bins I’ve seen. »
« A friend of mine already has a WormBag and is totally enthusiastic about it, so I wanted one myself. I don’t want to throw my organic waste into the organic bag anymore, but recycle it myself and turn it into soil. What I like about the product is the simple assembly and the competent, fully translated instructions. Someone really took the trouble to translate it cleanly and it is also understandable. I also ordered the worms right away and they are already eating diligently 🙂 I can only recommend the worm composter. »
« Works very well. Practical, easy to clean and no drowning worms, like in a box. Moisture balance in the WormBag very good. Would buy again. »
« I’m kind of new to worm composting and have heard horror stories other people tell about plastic systems. Well I followed the instructions and I’m pretty sure I have a happy, healthy worm bin! »
« I’ve had the Wormbag since March 2019, it does what it’s supposed to do, I’ve just “harvested” 2x 20 litre buckets of the finest worm compost and I’m thrilled with the new solution of the click and velcro fastener, which makes it much easier to remove. I put the whole thing on plastic boxes, so we don’t have to go down that far. I think the instructions for the WormBag are super good. I read it again and again and have good experiences with the compost, both for indoor and outdoor plants. »
« I’m a beginner to vermicomposting and I absolutely love this product. The zips make it very easy to open and maintain, and the design is attractive. My only concern is that while my worm bin has been establishing smaller worms have been escaping through small gaps at the ends where the zip meets the fabric. Over the last few weeks I’ve seen a couple small dried out worms that have escaped through these. I imagine that after a little more time this won’t be an issue so I have popped a little blu tack on these gaps. This is still an amazing product and I very much recommend it to anyone interested in this feed through system. »
WHAT’S BELOW THE SURFACE?
Inside the WormBag, there are three essential layers:
- Fresh food, organic material and bedding
- Partially decomposed material (That’s where most of the magic is happening.)
- Fully processed wormcastings, ready to harvest
The best location for the WormBag is a place protected from rain fall with temperatures between 15-25°C. Many people locate their WormBag outdoors during the warm months and move it to the garage, garden shed or cellar in winter.
WHAT GOES IN
Compost worms eat almost all fruit and vegetable residues, even bananas. What they disklike is meat, dairy products and citrus fruits. Some paper and cardboard is always necessary for feeding. Bioplastics that are certified as “home-compostable” can also be used.
YOU GUYS OK?
As soon as you have started with the WormBag, you quickly attach the earthworms to your heart and want them to be well. Don’t worry: You’ll find detailed information in the operating instructions supplied. In case of doubt, don’t hesitate to contact us.

DURABLE + RAT-PROOF
The WormBag is built with 900D Oxford fabric and a water-repellent lining. The material allows worms and compost to breathe, but reliably keeps out unwanted guests such as rats and other rodents. Marine grade zippers on the top allow for easy feeding and the lightweight iron frame can withstand a full load of 60+ kg.
Vermicompost is its own living ecosystem, full of beneficial bacteria, fungi, hormones, all standing ready to breathe life into your soil. The WormBag’s fabric construction helps you maintain aerobic conditions throughout the entirety of your vermicomposting process.
1 WORMBAG FOR 1 TO 6 PERSONS
This worm farm is perfect for a household between 1 to 6 inhabitants, the worms can consume up to 2kg of organic waste per day. Several WormBags next to each other can process larger quantities. This way, the WormBag is suitable for restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and other commercial applications.
HARVESTING MADE SIMPLE
The WormBag uses the highly-efficient, but incredibly simple continuous flow concept found in the world’s top vermicomposting operations. Your vermicompost is ready to use. No screening. No sifting. Just apply to your plants, soil, or growing medium.
WORMS FEELING WELL
The thoughtful design creates ideal conditions for compost worms. Inside, your organic waste is quickly and odorlessly converted into valuable humus.
Frequently asked questions
+ WHAT DO WORMS LIKE? WHAT DO THEY DISLIKE?
While nearly all organic waste can be vermicomposted given enough time and preparation, a home worm bin like the WormBag should probably only be fed nonmeat, non-dairy food waste.
Generally, it is a good idea to diversify the food waste you put into the WormBag: a good balance, in terms of volume, includes approximately 80% food waste and 20% bedding (such as shredded paper, cardboard, coco coir, plant leaves and other carbon-heavy materials). It will help aerate the food waste, keeping the pH neutral and making your worms healthier.
If you have any doubt, ask yourself these two questions: is this waste biodegradable? (Would it get decomposed in nature?). Is this waste of plant origin? If the answers are yes, then you can put it in the WormBag. Pay attention to the reactions of the worms after a few days.
+ CAN I USE THE WORMBAG OUTSIDE?
Technically, yes, but the worms won’t be able to tolerate extreme hot or cold temperatures and should be protected from direct exposure to sunlight and precipitation. It is recommended to keep it indoors.
+ HOW CAN I USE MY WORM CASTINGS?
This is up to you! Most people prefer to use worm castings as a soil amendment at a 10% substitution rate for a growing medium or apply it directly to the base of their plants as a top dressing. This will not burn the plants.
You can also brew worm tea by mixing water and a compost tea bag of worm castings at roughly a 1% concentration and apply as a soil drench or a foliar spray using a handheld low-pressure sprayer. This is an incredibly economical way to use worm castings.
+ HOW MUCH VERMICOMPOST CAN THE WORMBAG PRODUCE?
Your results are dependent upon too many variables to give you an accurate number. However you can use commonly-known rules of thumb to get a very rough estimate. Conservatively, worms can eat 25% – 50% of their own weight per day and at maximum density, you may have around 4 kg in an WormBag. So an WormBag stocked with 1 kg of worms will be able to process roughly ¼ to ½ kg of food waste per day under good conditions, roughly 10-20% of which will exit the worm in the form of worm castings.
+ WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I GO ON VACATION?
In most cases, your WormBag can be left alone for days or even weeks. Ensure that your worm bin is protected from extreme conditions and consider adding bedding and more food waste (if you are certain that the worms are processing it efficiently).
In case your absence will last more than 3 weeks, it would be wise to ask a friend to check on the Bag. And enjoy your vacation!
