We order the worms on Thursday and they are delivered to the store on Friday. People that are interested in getting worms need to place an order before Wednesday so that they can ensure that worms are reserved for them. People should pick their worms up at the store over the next few days (Friday, Saturday or Sunday). The worms are sold in 1/2 pound lots (this is 1/2 pound of worms in a small bag of soil) and are sold for $45.00. A kit consists of a 53L Rubbermaid Roughtote with holes drilled out of the lid (for ventilation), 1/2 pound bag of worms, 50 litres of soil, a trowel and a marker. The kit is sold for $75.00. We offer the bins and soil separately so you can purchase components as you need them. Please contact us at 780-439-8725 to order the worms and/or worm composting kit.
Whew! The mosquitoes are vicious this season. So many people have come into and phoned the store looking for safer products for themselves and their children. We have sold out once already this season but have restocked several lines though we haven’t received our Druide restocking order yet. We offer “In the Bush” from Butterfly Weed and Summer Survivor XS with Catnip Oil.
I have also ordered in some repellent patches.
We continue to expand our offering of unique vegan/vegetarian products. This week we added another product of Field Roast items – Coconut Breaded Cutlets. We also restocked the Celebration Roasts (Half Loaf), Meat Loafs, Apple Sage Sausages, Italian Sausages, and the very popular Wild Rice Cranberry Fig Roast en Croute (pastry wrap).
So if you are looking for a excellent product for a special meal check out these product offerings.

Since we opened we carried local certified organic eggs supplied by Sunshine Organics Farm and our customers have been quite pleased with the quality and price point. Sunshine Organics is a small family operation whose objective is to supply fresh organic eggs to their customers at the farmer’s market and therefore don’t have an ever increasing supply of eggs.
Well the summer markets are going to be up and running soon and therefore they are going to cut back a little on the eggs they can supply us since they need to supply their own direct customers at the downtown farmer’s market (102nd Avenue and 104th Street).
Last year when we were short we brought in certified organic eggs from BC – Rabbit River Farms. These were more expensive and definitely not local.
