The Tumbleweed Pet Poo Converter

Harness the power of nature and put it back into your garden!

The Tumbleweed Pet Poo Converter will handle, on average, the droppings of two medium dogs. However, this will vary with age, diet, exercise and breed of dog. (Think Chihuahua vs. St Bernard). The greater the amount of droppings recycled through the Pet Poo Converter, the quicker the level of castings will build up. The castings can then be easily harvested, as per the instructions, and used around the flower garden or in potting mixes.

Our Composter Line ::

We reviewed over 20 composters before choosing our composter line. What sets these composters apart is their ease of use and faster composting times. However we go one step further in choosing durable and easy to assemble systems that will be hard working garden tools for years (arduous assembly knocked out quite a few).

With the addition of the popular Green Cone Composting System, we now carry a line of 4 top quality composters including the Sunmar Continuous Composter Line, the Tumbleweed Composter, and the educational RolyPig Composter.

What Is It?

The Tumbleweed Pet Poo Converter is a worm farm which harnesses the power of nature to recycle pet droppings into worm castings and liquid manure (compost tea). The tea, often referred to by gardeners as ‘liquid gold’, is highly concentrated and can be mixed one part tea to four parts water.

How Does It Work?

The Tumbleweed Pet Poo Converter consists of two nesting boxes, with a lid, that make one compact unit. The worms eat and breed in the top box which has a perforated base to allow any liquid waste to drain through to the bottom (collector) box. "Worm poo" or worm castings are kept in the top box to be harvested as desired. The bottom box collects the valuable liquid waste which can be diluted and used as a fertilizer on your garden.

  • Worms convert the pet poo into worm castings - an incredibly nutrient-rich addition to soil.
  • Because the worms eat the bacteria, there is no odor.
  • Easy to set up and operate and takes little space.
  • No chemicals are used.

Composting FAQ's ::

The Tumbleweed Compost Maker is the best batch type compost maker we have found. Here are some common FAQ's about composting:

Q. What is the difference between mulch and compost?
A. Only the degree of decomposition. Mulch contains partially broken down ingredients and the breakdown of materials is not yet completed. Compost is the final stage of decomposition and is homogenous and looks like a rich brown soil.

Q. Why mulch instead of compost?
A. Most gardeners want mulch not compost (soil) Mulch is simply added on top of the garden bed in a thick layer 10 - 30 cms. deep. This helps to retain the moisture in the soil and protect the surface roots of the plants. It discourages weed growth and is a source of food to attract worms.

Q. Why is my compost lumpy?
A. This usually happens when the bin has not been turned often enough. Tumble the bin every two or three days. As the contents fall from top to bottom they hit the breaker bar across the middle which helps to break up lumps. Remedy the problem by adding shredded newspaper or empty the bin and dig into the garden and start again.

Q. Why is my compost wet and heavy?
A. Vegetable scraps have a high proportion of water. If you have used more than about 25% in proportion to grass cuttings, this may be the problem. Fix it by adding shredded newspaper. Alternatively empty the bin and dig it into your garden and start again.

Q. Why does my compost smell?
A. A foul smell indicates that anaerobic decomposition (without oxygen)is taking place. It can be caused by not tumbling sufficiently and aerating the ingredients. Or it may be due to too much moisture (see previous question) or it may be a combination of both. In some cases it may be due to not putting the compost bin in a sunny position. Heat is an important part of the decomposition process. The only remedy is to empty the contents and start again.

Q. Why is my compost hot?
A. This is not a problem. Heat is required for decomposition and it indicates that your compost is "cooking" beautifully!
