Living Composter

living composterGardener’s Gold – The happiest, healthiest plants ever—that’ll be the end result of feeding food scraps to the worms in this sculptural compost container. Most worm farms look, if we’re being polite, functional. And most compost containers, in tactful terms, do not smell like roses. This one, cool-looking and odorless, raises the bar on both counts. The designers of this biomorphic worm house collected data for almost two years, then created an algorithm to figure out the best shape for both worm health and human convenience.
