Vermicomposting

Asked January 11, 2018, 2:48 PM EST

Hello, I was reading up a bunch on vermicomposting, something I am hoping to set up at our home in the next couple of weeks. A site I had found said that maybe you guys would be able to help me find where to obtain red wriggler worms. If you have any advice on where I can purchase them that would be great. Thank you!

There are several places to purchase red worms (Eisenia fetida) locally, including Northwest Redworms http://www.northwestredworms.com/Pages/default.aspx, Pistils Nursery https://shop.pistilsnursery.com/ and Naomi's Organic Farm Supply http://naomisorganic.blogspot.com/. They are also available online from a number of vendors - even Amazon. This article, Composting with Worms https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/em9034.pdf will give you good information on taking care of them.
