Not selling anything yet, but may if we have extra after using it at our nursery.

Hi everyone. Does anyone out there use red wigglers and european night crawlers in the same bin?
Comment by JIM STACY on May 30, 2011 at 6:27am
Hi Jonathan, we raise both EA's and EH's in the same bin, not on purpose but they came mixed in. They do not inter breed , so you won't get a hybrid. For the most part we raise them separated because most people are getting them for different jobs.

Hi Folks, right now we raise roughly 5# of EA's for each 18gl. tote, just wondering if anyone has tried to raise more in that amount of space successfully, or if you can give me and amount per cubic foot?
Thanks and have a nice day, Jim

Good day!  I recently started worm farming as a business (Squirmywormy) and I am based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I would love to share thoughts and ideas with the rest of you professionals.  I'm presently small scale but plan on ramping up things a lot in the next few months.  I presently raise and sell the famous Red Worms and Worm bins.  I plan on getting into industrial applications in the future.

 Welcome Jason! I'm like Don in that i haven't actually sold any yet.Although i could.Not sure which route you are wanting to take?More than one way to sell worms.You can sell by pound,count,or even a set up of worms ready to go.Best to find the one that suites you personally.You can sell vc,supplies,etc.Not sure how far you have come?

 You may also want to join the farmers market group if you haven't already!

Thanks Garbage Guru.  So far I have only sold worms buy the pound and also some home made bins that people seem to like.  I'm actually getting a guest vendor spot at a local Farmer's market in July (Toronto).  The whole worm composting concept in Toronto still seems very unknown, I'm hoping to help change that!  Eventually I would like to get into using worms for treating sewage like they do in Australia and India.  I know that's large scale and will take years but I'm not going anywhere, so why not!

Worms are a product/project that works very well with the 'start small, learn as you go, and build as you gain experience' method.  I think you'll probably find, like most here, that a big part of your job is to educate other people about the worms and why they should have them.  I spend a lot of time at the markets (our family has a nursery) just talking to people about the benefits of worms, and castings, and tea, etc.  They often end up buying the castings to take home.  Starting this weekend, I'm taking working RM bins to sell, and I think I've got the regulars fully informed and wanting to buy some bins.
