Want to get your garden in tip-top shape this summer? Horticultural experts say one of the best things you can do is compost your kitchen and yard waste. It creates nutrient-dense soil, helps suppress plant diseases, and wards off common garden pests. As a result, you’ll save money on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. But the problem with compost piles is that they take up valuable backyard real estate, require constant maintenance, and sometimes smell. However, with a Subpod in-ground composting system, you’ll avoid all the hassle but still reap the benefits for your garden and the planet.

Composting 101

Composting isn’t just good for cultivating a lush garden. It’s also good for the rest of the planet. Annual greenhouse gas emissions from food waste in landfills are equivalent to emissions from 170 million cars. However, if the average family composts for one year, it’s the equivalent of taking one car off the road for six months. So composting is a pretty easy way to significantly reduce your carbon footprint. But how do you do it?

The most common method is hot composting, which relies on microbes, high temperatures, and a precise ratio of carbon and nitrogen to break down food waste. While this method is very effective, it requires a large quantity of compostable material and takes up a lot of space. It also requires a lot of knowledge, effort, and time—sometimes up to nine months. And if you don’t get it just right, this method can attract pests and produce a horrendous odor.

A much better composting method for the average family is vermicomposting, which uses microbes and various species of worms to transform organic waste into nutrient-dense compost. With a vermicomposting system, you don’t need as much organic material, you don’t need to be as precise with the carbon to nitrogen ratio, and you don’t have to worry about foul odors.

Think you might like to give vermicomposting a try? Then you definitely need to check out the Subpod system.

The Subpod Essentials Bundle

Subpod is an odorless in-ground composting system that uses worms and microbes to turn organic materials into compost. Over time, the worms and nutrients in this compost will feed your garden and help your plants thrive like never before.

The Subpod is basically a box with holes that you plant in your garden. Just put your food waste in, add the recommended species of worms, and occasionally aerate the box.

Aeration is performed with a specially designed tool, which is included with the Subpod Essentials Bundle. By aerating the compost occasionally, you help fresh air circulate through the Subpod ventilation panels. This allows aerobic microbes to speed up the composting process. As the worms and microbes breed in your Subpod, they spread out through the rest of your garden, boosting fertility everywhere. But you can still harvest the compost and spread it about your garden or other planters.

The Subpod works all year long. Because it is buried in the soil, either in the ground or a raised garden bed, it stays cool in the summer months and warm in the winter months. The worms stay active and produce compost all year long.

The Composting System That Blends Right In

The subpod weighs just 44 pounds and is made from safe, high-grade polypropylene. Its two chambers can hold up to 440 pounds of organic waste, which is enough for a family of four’s food waste. However, unlike those unsightly black composting bins that stand out like a sore thumb, the in-ground Subpod system blends in with its surroundings.

The best part about the Subpod is that anyone can use it. This system is totally beginner-friendly. In fact, all the instructions you need are right underneath the lid.

If you want to take your garden to the next level this summer while simultaneously reducing your carbon footprint, check out the Subpod Essentials Bundle. You will not regret it.
