The idea of composting certainly isn't new, but what makes this one so special is that all the composting is done below ground.
Not only is it hidden, but it also works much faster than regular composting systems because it has a large surface area to volume ratio maximising the soil contact for all those lovely bugs and worms to make there way through it super fast.
Hide them in various spots around your garden and simply cover with mulch
As the organic matter breaks down, it fertilises the surrounding plants without you having to do anything because the worms take it back out into the soil. It couldn't be simpler.
Fill one up and then move onto the next one. By the time you get to the last one, the first one is fully broken down.*
How many do you need?
*One for each person in your household plus at least one spare. This will give you the capacity to keep filling each one and moving to the next one.
Of course if you have more than the average in veggie scraps, it would be beneficial to extra Little Aussie Composters around the garden. They certainly wont do any harm, and make composting a stress free process. Let the bugs do the work!
Made and invented in Australia!
Tip: Use your Power Planter to dig the hole for your Little Aussie Composter.
Very happy with my bins. Easy to use. The food waste composts quickly with the help of Black Soldier Fly maggots. If my dog tries to dig up the container he can’t get the lid off so there is no mess and I just pop the container back in the hole. I’m curious as to how long the containers will last before they break down.
The compost bins were easy to dig in. The compost broke down quickly so by the time I had filled up all 3 bins the first one was ready to be emptied over the garden and refilled. It's nice to know the worms are working my garden over for me. I'm also using the clear top to create a glasshouse for my cuttings which are doing well.
Recently purchased 5 Little Aussie Composter bins. We love them and it has encouraged the family to start composting again (didn’t realise how much there is)! We’ve found dirt can get caught in the locking mechanism but is easily cleared. We also found we needed a marker system to find our bins (see photo with the elephant marking the spot). I’m planning on buying some more soon (we have a big garden!). I haven’t looked but maybe Power Planter can provide some composting tips too. Andrew
The pots were delivered quickly and I a fan of in ground composting. We have 5 in our garden and where the soil was dead we now have loads of worms, it's great to know that as all as helping the garden we are reducing land fill without the hassle of normal composting.
Extremely easy to install. Guilt of throwing kitchen scraps in the rubbish is no longer haunting me. Can’t wait to see what my garden worm friends produce for me. Great invention and excellent price! Bought 1 for me and 2 as a Christmas gift.
