As many of you know by now, I am a big fan of Robyn Crispe’s ‘Worm Inn’ continuous flow vermicomposting system. It is very easy to use, and as I discovered recently, it produces beautiful vermicompost!
As much as I have loved my Inns, there was still one suggestion I had for Robyn in terms of potentially improving the design. Her screen over top, while very aesthetically pleasing, unfortunately doesn’t do much to prevent flying critters from getting in and out since it is attached via velcro patches in only four spots. I thought perhaps a zippered screen could work really nicely. Robyn agreed, and went to work immediately to see if she could make it happen.
I am happy to report that she was indeed successful (I should mention however, that adding a zipper like this is not nearly as easy as it might seem!), and now has a ‘Pro’ version of the Worm Inn available. It costs $10 more than the regular Worm Inn since there is extra work involved (along with the cost of the zipper), but in my mind the improvement in design is DEFINITELY worth the small additional expense. So for $75 USD you can get one of these delivered to any address in U.S.A.
I have not yet added them to the Worm Inn page – if you think you might be interested in buying one, please send me an email (with “Worm Inn” included in the subject header) and I’ll set up a special order page for you. [UPDATE: You can now order the Worm Inn PRO near the bottom of the Worm Inn Order Page]
