About

The Subpod Grow composting garden bed is the perfect ‘compost + grow’ solution for a family of 2-4. Process up to 15kg of food waste a week, and also grow your own nutrient-dense food in your own space. Your veggies and herbs are getting supercharged by constant natural feeding and fertilisation! 

 

Airflow is key to good composting. The ventilation lets air in yet keeps the pests out. 

The internal divider allows you to segment your compost, and compost things such as onions which needs to de-gas. The worms will move in and out as needed. 

 Collect the nutrient-rich ‘worm juice’ made during composting, and use it diluted to water your plants. We call it #liquidgold 

For every 10 Subpods pre-ordered via Kickstarter, we’ll be giving one to a School or Community Group.

With over 900 Subpods pre-ordered to date, we’ve now allocated almost 100 donated Subpods! Find out more about the program here.

What Can I Compost?

Organic waste includes much more than just food scraps. Subpod will allow you to compost any organic matter which would usually be discarded in a green bin, including lawn and garden waste, paper, and even natural fibres such as clothing. That means that favourite old cotton shirt doesn’t have to go to landfill when you wear it out!

Even food scraps that are traditionally excluded from other compost systems can be added, including citrus peel, onions, fish, and meat on the bone (in small quantities). Just remember, it is worms and microbes doing the work, so the smaller each piece of waste is, the faster they will break it down.

We launched on Indiegogo in March 2019

We launched our first crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in March this year, which had wild success globally, gaining pre-orders from 29 countries and support from many more countries. 

Now we’re in Production!

Since the wrap of our first campaign, our team have been working super hard, and have been really focussed and committed to a successful manufacturing process, to make sure the Subpod is as refined, durable, and consistent as it can be. These first pre-orders to our Indiegogo backers will be fulfilled as first priority, followed by all others. We’re excited to say we’ll starting to ship these within the next 1-2 weeks (around 15th Nov onwards). Woot! We are incredibly thankful for all of the support we’ve received, and we do all we can to make your composting journey as amazing and smooth as it can be! 

Risks and challenges

We have an experienced team who have executed and managed many large crowdfunding and consumer product launches over the last 10 years.

We are already in production of the first batch of Subpods, and will be ready to begin shipping out pre-orders in January 2020. The first 1000 Subpods in January 2020. Next 1000 Subpods in February 2020. Following 2000 Subpods, allow 1 additional month (repeated).

If we fail to meet our target, pledges will not be processed as per standard Kickstarter policy.

All backers will be kept up to date via regular updates and any unforeseen issues will be communicated proactively to the community.
