Obtaining composting worms

Asked June 19, 2015, 10:30 AM EDT

Hi, I'm interested in using worms for composting. I've done the reading and I believe I'm ready. I'm willing to barter some garden labor for worms. Do you know anyone who maybe interested? BTW, nice plant sale, my wife got some nice Mother's Day plants that are doing well.

Great!
Here is our vermicomposting information, which includes a link to our publication on this subject: http://extension.umd.edu/mg/locations/vermicomposting
The publication has sources for obtaining redworms.
You might also try asking at your local Extension office if there are any local Master Gardeners who have any to share.
