Vermicomposting System

Tray systems are perfect for those that do not like to handle the worms or for families that produce more food scraps than the basic Vermicomposter can handle. Harvesting the Living Composter is clean and easy. When the worms have finished converting food scraps and bedding from one tray, add another tray with fresh bedding on top and the worms will make their way up to the new food source. The lower tray will now consist of converted castings (worm poo) ready to be used in your plants and gardens.

Composter with no Worms


Red Wigglers:

Composter with 1 lb. Red Wiggler Worms


Composter with 1/2 lb. Red Wiggler Worms


The Living Composter is a 2nd generation worm composter with a number of design updates:

  • Trays have a moisture control water retention channel running around the outside of each tray. Instead of allowing the liquids to fall directly through the tray this channel gathers moisture to prevent the bedding from drying out along the edges.
  • When adding the second tray, a collection of 40 angled tunnels extend down from the bottom directly into the bedding of the tray below. This provides ample access for worms to migrate between trays.
  • Aeration is important for happy worms and good compost. A series of support points are molded into the lower edge of the trays. This raises the trays slightly allowing 360 degrees of airflow across the bedding.
  • The double walled lid and base provide excellent insulation against temperature swings helping to maintain an ideal environment.
    The Living Composter system includes:
  • Two stacking trays, lid and base
  • Each tray has recessed slots to make handling easy
  • Initial bedding (shredded paper, coco-coir, soil mix)
  • Instruction manual
  • Lifetime support

Coconut Coir Coin Plant Starter

Replacement Bedding

Shredded newsprint/paper, soil, Agricultural lime.
(Enough bedding for one level of Worm Chalet or a basic Vermicomposter)

Basic Bedding:


Deluxe Bedding:
(includes Coir brick)



Coconut Coir

Brick (8"x4"x2")


Block (1'x1'x4.5")



Coconut Coir is made from the fibrous brown husk that surrounds a coconut. It makes a great bedding for worms and is excellent growing medium for all types of plants. Coir is an ideal alternative to Peat Moss (a non-renewable resource) and is becoming the bedding and growing medium of choice for commercial operations throughout North America.


Plant/Garden Goodies

Coir coin plant starters
(package of 20)


As with all coir products, add water and coins expand to at least 6 times original size. Add to pot with tea spoon of soil (or castings) for excellent plant starters.


Eco Neem
(package of 10 disks)


New price:


Neem trees are renown for water retention and surviving drought conditions. Neem is also a key ingredient in non-pesticidal insect management, providing a natural alternative to synthetic pesticides.
Dig a trench in your garden and place Neem disks in trench. Cover with soil. Neem disks will absorb water during rainfalls and expand to soak up excess moisture. They will then release water when soil drys out.

*All Coir product are OMRI Listed.

Pick your Colours:


"I didn't think the Sure-Close would be much different from the regular bin I was already using. Boy, was I wrong. The Sure-Close compost pail is by far the best collection container I've ever used. The perforated lid lets the air flow so the pail is odour free. The lid stays open when required making the pail easier to use and can be snapped close with one hand. The opening is angled making it easier to put food scraps in with less spillage ending up on the floor or counter. Possibly the most important feature is the snug interlocking seal and lid clasp that ensures a tight closure that will keep fruit flies out!"

Note: This is not a vermicomposter. It is a compost collection bucket used to collect food scaps.
