After a long winter the warm weather is finally here! To welcome the start of the gardening season the worm store is officially open. Ready to use vermicompost bins (each kit includes a worm bin, bedding and 1/2 lb of worms) are available for 30$. Worms can also be purchased separately for 15$ per 1/2 lb. Visit the Worm Store to place your orders.
Today, August 14, 2010, is the huge Montreal back to school bike sale. The sale take place at 8256 Casgrain – near the corner of Jarry – Close to Jarry Park – Between Metro Jarry and Metro de Castelnau and starts at 12:00 sharp.
Worm Girl will be there with packages of red wigglers and ready to use vermicompost bins from noon until 1 pm. So come out and meet the worms!
I recently did a load of laundry by hand with my mother-in-law’s washboard – as an experiment – to see if the clothes really would get cleaner, and they did - it was like night and day, so I am now fully converted to washing clothes the hard way. To that end, I am looking to acquire a laundry washboard. I know I can buy a new one for about 30$ at the quincaillerie down the street or an old one labelled as ‘antique’ for 40$ online. However, I also know that there are people out there with old washboards that are going unused, or worse going in the trash, who might be willing to trade. Therefore, I am offering one ready to use vermicomposting bin complete with 1/2 lb of worms and a lifetime of technical support in exchange for one laundry washboard in usable condition. I am willing to travel anywhere in the greater Montreal area to make the trade. If you already compost and don’t need a worm bin but still have a laundry washboard to get rid of I would still like to hear from you. I’m not against buying a used washboard, I just don’t want to pay more for a used one than I would for a new one. Use the Contact Worm Girl button above to reach me. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To celebrate the end of moving season I will be having worm sales every evening from Monday July 5 until Friday July 9. There are many ready to use vermicomposters complete with bedding and 1/2 lb of red wigglers and 1/2 lb packages of red wiggler compost worms available for sale. To place an order and get the address for pick up use the Contact Worm Girl button above. The pick up location is in Villeray near Fabre metro.
Worm Girl and Bike Guy are getting together again this year to offer you everything you need for a green start to the new school year: recycled bikes for gas-free transportation and worms and vermicomposters for apartment or dorm composting. The sale takes place on August 29th at 8258 Casgrain (near metros Jarry and Castelnau, see here for a map) from 12 noon to 1pm. If you’re interested in the bikes be sure to get there early to get the best selection!
Worm Girl will have ready-to-use vermicompost bins as well as 1/2 pound packages of worms available. So whether you’re ready to start vermicomposting or just want to see what it’s all about, come by and meet the worms, pick up some vermicomposting supplies, ask questions or just to chat about composting. Oh, and take one of the bikes for a test ride if you like. The Bike Guy will have over 20 bikes to choose from, priced between 70 and 120$ (see the bike site for more details).
The summer may be off to a wet start but the worms are loving the warm wet weather. And since the worms are so productive there will be worm sales every week in July. If you’ve been thinking about starting vermicomposting now’s the time! Contact Worm Girl to find out when and where the next sale is taking place.
Now that moving day is over Worm Girl Montreal is back up and running. And since I have less space at the new place I’m having a huge sale to empty out some of my worm bins. The sale will take place this Sunday July 5th between noon and 2 pm in the Villeray area (near metro Fabre). There will be 20 worm bins and several 1/2 lb packages of worms.
