The subpod was extremely simple to assemble and install. My husband made a box to accommodate it and just yesterday I activated it with paper and dry leaves and compost and worms from our existing compost. It is a very convenient solution to pest problems in our compost system. Thank you.
I have been using an indoor worm composting system for a few years now and recently purchased a home with a back yard. Subpod appeared to be the perfect solution for a composting upgrade. My Subpod Grow Bundle arrived in great shape (after a slight delay, but no worries there) and was super easy to set up. Note: it does take a considerable amount of dirt to fill! I used some paver bricks to stabilize and elevate the Subpod to the right height within the garden bed. It looks great and does offer a nice place to sit and ponder the magic happening beneath the lid. I don't think the worms missed a beat after the transfer to their new home. This thing handles WAY more than my indoor composter was able and I am very happy that our food waste has been reduced even further. I will still avoid any oily or animal products and minimize citrus and onions/peppers. No unpleasant smells and I have not noticed any vermin being attracted to the area so far. A larger hole for a lid locking mechanism is my only observation for improvement at this point. Looking forward to many more years of successful urban composting!!
I've been vermicomposting for over a decade and this is the best design I have found for keeping an bulky plastic container out of sight and for regulating temperature (going underground). Now that's its in the ground I am very happy with it, however I took a star off because it is very expensive after taxes and shipping for UK customers (£185) and the lid keeps coming out of its hinges every time I open it, which is annoying. I now just rest the lid on top of the box. Also, the small screw to connect the aerator to the handle was missing. Little things, but I pay attention to details...Overall, I hope the Subpod is a success and that more people will compost with worms, I'm a bit obsessed!
Solid unit with excellent support online with helpful tutorial videos.
So far my experience with the Subpod is great. I love putting my compostable food scraps and other house hold materials into the compost bin! Now all I need are my worms :)
