Bag Equivalents

August 14, 2014

IMPORTANT UPDATE: March 17th 2015

We now sell a product called Easy Worm Mix – it comes in a single larger bag (like the white bag shown below). It is no longer based on “bag equivalents”.

ALL INFORMATION BELOW IS NO LONGER RELEVANT – Refer to the Composting Worms page for up to date product information.

Yesterday I opened up a box of (what I thought were) my usual breathable worm bags, only to realize with horror that I had ordered a much larger size by accident. After some initial cursing and teeth gnashing , I reached the conclusion that I could still use the bags. I’d simply switch from individual bags to “bag equivalents”.

What exactly are “bag equivalents”?

I will fill the smaller bags (luckily I still had a handful of them when the new bags arrived) with Composting Worm Mix and then transfer the worm-rich material into one of the larger bags before packing and shipping, or handing directly to a customer.

Same quantity of worm mix – the only difference is that it comes in a single bag (or two bags, in the case of larger pick-up orders).

What’s funny is that I actually think this could prove to be a superior approach. The single bag is easier to pack (and protect), and the worms have even more of a consistent, supportive environment to dwell in before being transferred to their new home.

Worm Inn Update- Limited Quantities Available

August 6, 2014

IMPORTANT UPDATE – APRIL 2015 – For current information relating to Worm Inns please refer to the Worm Inn Page (the blog post below is now outdated)

I decided to start selling Worm Inns again this year – including the new Worm Inn “Mega”.

But since I really wasn’t sure how much interest there would be, I only shipped up a small quantity of them (with two color options each). Interest in the regular Worm Inns hasn’t been all that strong, so I won’t be continuing to sell them (for the time being). In light of this, you can now get a regular Worm Inn (plus special corner pieces for building PVC pipe stand) for only $75 + shipping.

Interest in the Mega has definitely been higher – and I will continue to make them available (also since I have one of my own set up right now, with plans to set up another very soon). Nevertheless, I have still slashed the price from $145 + shipping to $125 + shipping (includes special corner pieces for PVC stand + plans for the easy-to-build wooden stand).

Here is ALL That is Left:

Regular Worm Inns

Green – 3
Port – 3

Worm Inn Megas

Port – **SOLD OUT**

More Megas are on the way, but 2-4 of them are already accounted for. If you are interested in a Mega make sure to get in touch ASAP.

I’ll be so bold as to say that there is no better vermicomposting system for home-scale indoor use than the Worm Inn. They are forgiving (tough to “overfeed”), you don’t need to deal with “bugs” and worms escaping, and they are very effective for turning kitchen scraps into beautiful vermicompost.
