The Worm Inn – Continuous Flow Vermicomposting System
*** NOW AVAILABLE – The Worm Inn Mega – Details Below! ***
I am very excited to be able to offer this great new vermicomposting system. Inspired by my ‘Creepy Pants Vermicomposter‘, Robyn Crispe decided to put her sewing talents and creativity to the test in an effort to create a stylish, but still effective, continuous-flow (aka ‘flow-through) system. She certainly succeeded.
Robyn eventually decided to move on to other endeavors and the Worm Inn brand is now owned by Jerry Gach, but it is still the same top quality system it has always been. In fact, Jerry has even added some improvements, such as the single zipper (vs double zipper) closure – effectively reducing the chances of flying pests getting in or out.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A stand is not normally included with the Worm Inn, but for the time being, the PVC stand building kit IS included when you order below. This includes 8 corner pieces and 4 zip ties. We’d send you the entire stand if it weren’t for the fact that shipping costs would increase substantially. You should be able to buy the required 3/4″ PVC piping at your local hardware store for $5-10.
The Worm Inn is made of durable, yet breathable, cordura fabric, so you can be sure you won’t be producing anaerobic muck in the bottom unlike most plastic worm bins. High quality castings will be deposited and left behind as the worms continue to move upwards towards the freshest deposits of food. Once the initial material (food and bedding) has been converted to vermicompost (a mixture of castings and other materials that have not passed through a worm), you will be able to continue harvesting on a ongoing basis, as long as you continue to add new waste materials above. Speaking of harvesting, the Inn also features a handy drawstring opening/tightening system at the bottom, to make vermicompost harvesting a breeze.
The Worm Inn is currently available in four attractive designs. We also have some options for those interested in ordering a Worm Inn with worms. Just so you know, the system will be sent separately (before) the worms, giving you a chance to get it set up before your wigglers arrive.
If you DO plan to buy worms with these systems, please make sure you have read my ‘Fine Print’ & ‘Additional Info’ sections before ordering.
Available Designs: Plum, Brown, Camo, Port, Green
Note: The corner pieces and zip ties that come in the kit are white – these stands (in picture) have been painted black.

*** All prices below INCLUDE shipping to anywhere in continental U.S.A. (Unfortunately we do NOT ship to Canada at this time) Again, if you chose to order a Worm Inn with worms you will receive two separate packages (the Worm Inn will arrive before the worms).***
*** When you order a Worm Inn (or Worm Inn + Worms) you will also receive the PVC stand kit (8 corner pieces and 4 zip ties) – the lengths of 3/4″ PVC can be purchased at your local hardware store (likely $5-10 vs $20+ if we had to ship them to you). To learn more about building a PVC stand (and about the current promotion in general), be sure to read this blog post: “Worm Inn Journal – 08-02-10“***
***Make sure you have selected the color you want from the drop down options. If you simply click “buy now” the default option (brown) will be selected and that is the color you will receive.***
*** NEW – The Worm Inn Mega ***
People have raved about the original Worm Inn! Whether it’s the composting speed, the ease of use, the quality of the castings – or one of numerous other fantastic benefits – most users have found the system to be a breath of fresh air (often literally – lol) in comparison to using various types of plastic, enclosed bins.
Well, now the Worm Inn just got BIGGER and better! The Worm Inn Mega holds at least DOUBLE the volume of the standard model so you can expect a massive boost in processing power!
From now until Christmas (maybe early in the new year) you can become one of the first people to own a Mega…at a discount! Of course, they make great presents as well!
The prices you see below are TOTALS – no additional shipping charges, no hidden fees. Nada.
NOTE: Like the Worm Inn, the “Mega” comes with a PVC stand “kit” – BUT for the sake of keeping shipping costs (again, these are included in prices) low, we’ve opted to not include the actual lengths of PVC in the package. These (3/4″, “schedule 40″) can easily be purchased at a local hardware store – they’d probably even cut them for you! You’ll need 4 x 36″ lengths for the vertical uprights, and 8 x 20″ lengths for the horizontal supports.
*** UPDATE: All Worm Inn Mega purchases (from Red Worm Composting) now also include access to plans for an easy-to-build wooden stand. ***
