The Earthmaker can help you make a big 30 litre bag of high quality compost every month.
It was designed to work fast and at the same time to be clean and easy to use. It’s unique design features three chambers stacked vertically allowing gravity to do most of the hard work for you. And warm air flowing upwards through the waste speeds decomposition.
Trials at Garden Organic’s Ryton Site over a 6 month period show the Earthmaker design is almost twice as productive and almost twice as fast as traditional compost bins.
Perfect for all those with busy lives and for gardeners of all ages and levels of mobility.
It’s EASY, SIMPLE, FAST and it’s also good for the planet because it avoids the methane normally produced by anaerobic composting in single bins or landfill.
You really can't find a better soil additive than compost. It loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils retain water and it can suppress weeds, plant diseases and pests.
It’s a fact that gardens that are composted produce higher yields of healthier fruits, vegetables and flowers.

An average household of 3 – 4 adults & children in the UK will produce 10 – 20 litres of kitchen waste per week plus double that in garden waste.
Earthmaker is a very ‘busy machine’. In average use an Earthmaker may ‘digest’ 1000 – 1500 litres per year, yielding 200 – 300 litres of dense rich worm-filled compost.
The HDRA Sustainable Waste management Team at Ryton, Warwickshire, have completed a 26 week trial of Earthmakers versus traditional compost bins. Their report concludes that :”Earthmaker is easy to use; produces compost faster than traditional bins; produces over twice as much ready to use compost as traditional bins over the same period; is easy to empty.
