Apartment and condominium dwellers interested in using worm composting for their kitchen scraps usually don't have the space to hide the ugly containers. A good solution is Vermicondo, a sleek multi-level stainless steel container designed by Levitt Goodman Architects to suit contemporary kitchen cabinetry. The worms are "upwardly mobile," eating their way from the bottom layer full of worm bedding and food waste to the top layer. They leave behind organic soil, thus saving the need to "muck through worm leftovers". Right at the top of the Vermicondo is a "rooftop garden" of wheatgrass or whatever else catches your fancy. Perhaps herbs or some indoor plants?

The Vermicondo retails for $1,500 which translates to true luxury living for worms and a pile of the most expensive organic soil around. Stats for High Rise Composts Trending: Older & Chilly
