So the worm turns....

Today i finally went and got my worm composter thanks to the inspiration of the Hippy Chick and Mary Quite Contrary. This is something that all apartment dwellers should have. It is like a composter only takes up much less room and uses worms to eat your garbage. Using one could reduce your waste by 30%!!I got mine through Vancouver's city farmer on Maple st. For just $25 you get $100 worth of stuff, including Worms Eat My Garbage by Mary Appelhof, the Wormwoman herself, a bunch of red wiggler worms, bedding and the worm condo. But if you are not in Vancouver, i know alot of other municipalities offer the same sort of deal. It's your tax dollars at work, so take advantage! Or if you want to build one yourself, go here.

Right now my worm bin is set up in the kitchen due to the unseasonably cold weather in Vancouver right now. But most years you can leave your worm bin outside all year long in Vancouver. I am very excited about it and excited for the nice fertile soil i should have by April!!

:) Check your technorati status. You'll see I'm in two places.

I'd so love to have a wormery! Not the right time at the moment but I'll keep an eye on yours. Can you post pics of it?
