This page/"business" was created by an avid worm composter who couldn't find a local source for worms when he started his first worm bin.

Since then, I've been joined by some equally-devoted friends, who make getting started even easier!

It's not a fancy page/"business"; our only intention is to make it cheap and easy for our fellow Chicagoans to get the right kind of worms to start composting!


We have 2 locations in Chicagoland.

Our West Suburban location is in Westchester, IL. If you're out West, email to arrange for a pickup!
If you're closer to the city we have another location in East Garfield Park!
BIG NEWS! I am re-vamping the page so it doesn't look like a 3-year old built it! Don't believe me?

That was just a TASTE. The new website will look really nice, and will still contain my witty banter! (yes, that's debatable, OK...)

So here's the deal: 1/2 lb of red wiggler worms for $20. (Approximately 500 worms, but I don't count them)

1/4 lb of red wiggler worms for $10


*Pay it forward rules apply. By accepting a free shot of worms, you solemnly (or happily!) pledge to provide worms to at least one other person once they've multiplied enough.

You also have to follow us on Twitter :) A shot of worms will not devour your garbage very quickly, but after a few months they'll have multiplied enough to keep things under control


Pre-Built, ready-to-go worm bin? $40 with everything you need. Ask for details! Pickup only on these.

More info!

- 1/4 to 1/2lb worms is plenty to get a bin started. worms will multiply over the course of a month or two and establish a nice community in there. If you're planning to start a lot of bins and need a huge number of worms, make sure to give me at least a week's notice!

- For info about building worm bins: Check HERE: This is how I built mine, more or less.
There is a lot of info out there on the internet and you don't need a fancy one (though they are cool and collect worm tea).
Build your own or order one! Look around on google (or wherever)!
