The earthworm mix contains between 100 - 200 red wigglers of all ages along with cocoons living in a microbe-rich bedding. We sell them in a large 650 ml yogurt container and is a more affordable way of buying worms as compared to buying them by weight. We have sold this mix to hundreds of happy customers who were looking to start a worm farm. 

Whom is the red wiggler worm mix for?

Our worm mix is for new worm parents looking to start a worm bin. Any experienced worm composter will tell you that the secret to a successful bin are the essential microbes as they are the first to break down your food scraps so the wormies can eat the smaller pieces.

If you are starting new, our worm mix approach provides you with microbe-rich material from our mature bins so you can have a stable system right from the start. As the worms are in their original environment, they will settle easily into their new home - your worm bin.

About our wormies

Our wormies are fed a diet of spent coffee grinds from our neighbourhood cafe and we do not use processed bedding like coco coir and peat moss as they are energy intensive and environmentally destructive. Instead, we use shredded cardboard as bedding.

Euros vs red wigglers: what's the difference?

Both are excellent composting worms and you likely won't realize the difference when it comes to composting. That said, reds are more favoured than euros though because they have a greater tolerance to temperature fluctuations, pH fluctuations, and rough handling. If you have a simple worm bin at home, you need not worry about any of that - it's food for thought for larger scale worm farmers.

An advantage euros have is that they are a bigger worm so they can be used as bait for fishing or for feeding your reptiles!


 You will receive a free Worm Parenting Guide pdf after you checkout. This will help you get started in your vermicomposting adventure and keep your wormies happy and healthy.

The worm mix is only available for local Ottawa orders, because the wormies get super stressed when they are shipped!

You will be sent an email/text when your order is ready for pickup.

To find red wigglers outside Ottawa, try looking for them on Kijiji, local gardening groups, or this online resource.

Wrigglers are wriggling!

Easy pick up, great directions, and great compost! The worms are working their way to shorty consume everything our house can provide. Thanks Akil.
