$20 · Kick start your composter with Red Wiggler Worms
Aug 13 update: Red Wiggler worms are available.
Red wigglers, (Eisenia foetida), are hard-working, locally-grown worms that will make a huge difference to your compost--better texture and faster composting. Wigglers are 8 times better at creating compost than earthworms. Can be used in outside or indoor composters--all seasons. $20 for 200 worms plus worm hatchlings to get your next generation going.
Located 4 blocks south of Royal Jubilee. 250-882-8916 text or phone between: 10am - 7pm.
Q: Can these worms be used in an open-style compost pile?
A: Yes, but wigglers do better in an enclosed system. They don't tolerate high heat, freezing temperatures or direct sunlight, so they may leave an open pile in search of a better environment. A covered bin located in shade/part-shade is ideal.
Q. Can I keep them indoors?
A. Yes. It may even be more desirable as there is less stress to the worms from temperature swings. A normally functioning bin has a pleasant, earthy smell.
Q: Can I just drop by for worms?
A. No, I need time to collect them. I don't keep worms packaged as they are happier living in their bins.
Q. Where are you located?
A. Victoria, 4 blocks south of Royal Jubilee Hospital.
Q. Can I keep them in a container until I have time to make a worm bin.
A. It's best to have your worm bin ready ahead of time as to not stress the worms unnecessarily.
Q. Do you sell worms for fish bait?
Q. Where can I learn more about worm composting?
A. Victoria's Compost Education Centre, 1216 N Park St, Victoria. (250) 386-9676 They offer free classes on composting.
