The ‘Parasite Farm’ is an indoor compost system that can be easily integrated into your current living environment. Today 88% of Germany’s population lives in cities and only 5.8% of the country’s cultivated land is farmed ecologically. While most fruits and vegetables have become available all year round we are loosing touch with how it was grown, harvested and transported. The expensive, highly compacted urban area doesn’t leave much room for agricultural practices and not everybody has access to a balcony or garden. To answer that question, designers have come up with the ‘Parasite Farm’, a system that enables you to compost your biological waste, produce humus soil and to grow your own vegetables and herbs – all within your apartment!

To integrate with your interior and your habits both the vermicompost system and the plant boxes use existing furniture as infrastructure. The parasitic objects are fed by your food scraps and provide you – in turn – with fresh vegetables. We hope that this small-scale nutrient cycle makes people discover the fascination of growing you own food and evokes questions about the current industrial food production and possible alternatives.
