The digester is an easy way to compost any type of food scrap, including items that typically cannot go into the earth machine such as dairy, cooked food, bread, bones, and meat. It must be dug 2 feet into well draining soil in a sunny area of the garden. There is no need to harvest finished compost, you simply add all your food scraps and it 'digests' them, turning yor waste into a nutrient rich leachate that is absorbed by the surrounding soil. It can also be used to compost pet waste(must be placed at least 10 feet away from a food garden or fruit producing tree in this case). No skill or effort required, simply fill and forget:

  • Easy assembly - requires only a screwdriver and a shovel
  • Requires very little maintenance after installation
  • Handles up to 11lbs of food scraps per week
  • Pest resistant
  • Perfect for group dwellings, schools and households with limited green space

Member Price $148.50
