Team up with compost worms and microbes to create rich soil and grow organic food.
Subpod is the compost system that’s different. Completely pest free and odourless thanks to its careful design, composting has never been this easy. Worms and microbes live inside Subpod, travel out and spread rich nutrients into your garden, then return home to compost your waste.
Taking care of your waste is as simple as opening a lid, stirring your scraps in and taking a seat. All the hard work is done by the worms below you. Subpod is attractive, but also subtle – easily hidden by bushy plants and thriving vegetables, so you can focus on keeping your garden gorgeous.
You don’t have to compromise on beauty in your garden, compost with Subpod.
How it works
Subpod works like a little compost factory. Your compost worms, and the beneficial microbes that live alongside them, are the workers! They take food scraps and carbon items (like paper, leaves and coconut peat) and turn it all into rich compost that builds soil and helps plants thrive.
Being underground, Subpod creates a natural environment for compost worms. Having access to the soil means they can feed and breed as rapidly as they like, because there’s always room for their population to grow. Soil is an insulator, and in hot weather, compost worms will instinctively escape into soil to cool down. As the weather turns cold, it will keep your worms warm and active during winter (as long as the soil doesn’t freeze). Every time your worms leave Subpod, their movement aerates your garden soil and increases its nutrient content.
Subpod is an aerobic system, which means it promotes odourless microbes to boost the composting process, not smelly anaerobic ones. The unique 360 ventilation below Subpods’ lid keeps fresh air cycling through your system and, with weekly aeration, your compost will only ever smell like a forest floor.

Are you ready to retire your old school compost system, or create a world without waste? Join the community and discover just how easy and rewarding composting can really be.
Subpod began with a simple idea: make composting a part of everyday life. We believe that if we can do that, we can teach people to love the soil their food comes from, and make the world a little bit better together.
The Subpod family started as a tight-knit group of likeminded people from all walks of life. But our family has gotten a lot bigger since then. Subpod has spread globally thanks to the overwhelming support of our worldwide composting community.
