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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
Finally, to stay true to our CORE MISSION to promote worm composting in Chicago... a shot-glass of worms (maybe 30 worms?) FOR FREE*.
*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.
To order, ask questions, or say hi to our new Westchester, IL location, send an email to: email@example.com.

|- 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!
