Indoor Composting Ecosystems

Unfortunately for some, especially those living in urban settings, composting is not an option either because they lack an outdoor area or the stomach to engage in the activity; the Parasite Farm offers a great solution to both. It is an indoor composting system that encourages responsible eco-friendly behavior in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

The Parasite Farm was conceived by German-based designers Charlotte Dieckmann and Nils Ferber. It features a chopping board with a built-in compost bin that mounts onto kitchen counters as well as planters that slot into standard bookshelves. The idea is to actively compost while cooking. Leftover food is conveniently dropped into the bin below and converted into soil. Residual water is also siphoned as natural liquid fertilizer.  Both are then placed into the planters to grow indoor gardens.
