2020 Gift Guide: Gifts for The Newbie Composter!

As a newbie composer myself, I’ve been researching and thinking of my own set up for a while, by now I pretty much have a list of recommendations for a fun, useful gift for someone who loves composting!

Subpod- the all in one solution!

What I love about Subpod besides being beautiful, functional, and easy to use, is the huge support and learning system that the subpod community offers! With videos, a course, and a very active community forum, you can feel confident about the new wormy adventure ahead!

The subpod is not only a worm farm but a really unique one! The Subpod not only disposes of your organic waste but is also the ‘growth hub’ for your garden. The movement of worms and microbes between your Subpod and garden bed builds soil fertility and plant health, allowing you to grow nutrient-dense food at home with ease.

The Subpod® in-garden compost system that works with nature, using worms and microbes to compost organic waste without the odors, vermin, mess, and hard work of traditional composting.

Visit subpod.com to learn and order your own system! Join the Subpod Grow Hub community by clicking here! If you want to follow along my own Subpod journey, join me on Instagram @LatikaSkincare

Composting is fun because you get to turn food scraps, that otherwise would be added to the trash, into beautiful, fertile soil! The best part is not only reducing waste but also being able to grow life, garden organically, and be more sustainable while you do it.
