This sounds like a good group to be with.
there was an post someware about a girl with Down syndrome (Bentlys page I think) she was working with vc but not the worms yet. And I thought if I would give some worms away that would be the perfect place.I just got to get my worm stock up (last winter sucked)

You can't ship worms from the mainland to Hawaii, but if anyone in Hawaii wants to get started, I'm happy to give them a starter bin. I've also got more VC than I can use in my studio apt. if anyone here wants some.

Also, if anyone knows of urban farms/greenhouses similar to Will Allen's, it would be nice to have a list of those too. I'd love to volunteer time at a place like that, but I don't know of any in my area. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels that way.

I love giving and getting people interested in "squirms" and worm ranching. It is fun to watch them get all excited about babies and compost. Anything we can do to encourage and support just one person to be environmentally friendly, is worth it.

Hi all;

   I began worm farming after I checked into home made solutions for fertilizer because I'm too poor to purchase them from the storm or otherwise.  I learned to make my own fertilizer by raising worms.  After scraping up the money to buy worms I killed nearly all of them over-feeding.  A friend from Minnesota dug up worms in her yard and mailed them to me!  Successfully raising worms for 2 years now I have often contributed to others some of my worms, the eggs or loads of baby worms to get them set up.  Worms are one of the best things poverty-stricken persons can do to help create wonderful produce in their garden without using money.  

I check CraigsList every now and then for someone asking for worms.  I've made 3 donations so far.

Hi Bonnie! I'm surprised your worms survived! Aren't those garden worms instead of compost worms? Tell me more! ( I know it's kinda late)
