Can dog, cat and other animal faeces be composted in Subpod?
Yes, you can compost animal poop in a Subpod. If you choose to do this however, you will not be able to use any of the worm castings or worm tea for fertilizer on plants that will be eaten by humans.
You will need to put a warning on your Subpod to let people know that the Subpod contains animal poo and can’t be used as a fertiliser for your edibles :)
Because Subpod uses a cool composting process, it is safer not to use the worm castings or worm tea from Subpods that compost poo from animals.
For health reasons, and to be on the safe side, we advise that you compost animal poop (fecal matter) and anything that comes into contact with animal poop in a separate Subpod to your normal Subpod (Subpod for growing human food).
If you do choose to compost animal poo, make sure you add some dry carbon and make sure the moisture level is sufficient.
The worms will benefit if you vary their diet, providing them with a range of organic waste :)
