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.
We have been offering these very useful for many years. I am always taken by how simple yet complicated this design for this item. The plastic bag dryer works as it is suppose to and should give customers many years of satisfaction.
We offer these for $18.00 plus GST.

I was very pleased to introduce this very excellent product to the Edmonton vegan/vegetarian consumer but it looks like I can’t get more product for some time (I haven’t been able to get new stock for a couple of months so far).
I am going to visit this supplier when I am down in Vancouver in April for a trade show and will try to arrange something that will work for all of us.
Many people really enjoyed these products and I would really like to get them back into the store.

Today is the first day of spring.
I am feeling bouyed that spring will bring a paradigm shift for more people and our society. We need a shift to happen for a healthier future.
Yesterday I was in the parking lot talking with a customer and I noticed the moon rising on the eastern horizon. I remarked how large and bright it was. I was unaware that there was something special happening with the moon this weekend. It will be closer to our planet this weekend than it has been for 20 years. Try to make time to take in the celestial display this evening and celebrate the arrival of SPRING!

The other week I was in Safeway and decided to gather pricing for the organic items they carried and then I compared it to the prices in Earth’s General Store. You can see this blog here.
Many people have remarked about our lower prices (especially bulk) when compared to Planet Organic so earlier this week (I have not been to their store since last fall) I went and spent some time (an hour or so) walking around their store and recording prices.
Anyway. I wrote down quite an extensive list and I produced a spreadsheet of their prices as of Tuesday, March 15th, 2011. I just finished entering in our prices.
As with the Safeway price comparison we certainly have the best prices on organic herbs and spices, coffee (Fair Trade Certified and Certified Organic – and our coffee is roasted fresh right here at our store), and bulk grains and beans.
My son Timothy is now 16 and a half years old and I suspect he will be wanting to move into his own place in a few years or so. To give him some idea of the costs of living on your own and to prepare him we created a list of products that he figured that he would use during a normal week. This list included toilet paper, dish washing liquid, fresh fruit, pasta, breakfast cereal, cheese, bread, peanut butter, pasta sauce, etc. He did not include any meat in his list nor did he add it when we were at the store.
Last Wednesday evening we went over to Safeway at Bonnie Doon to do a store tour and to price out his list. We did product comparisons of by unit weight or volume to see whether he was getting value for his money.
I choose Safeway since it was close to our home and he and his friends would likely use it when they are purchasing their food when they have their own place. I would hope that he would choose to support the farmer’s market and organic stores but that will be his choice when he comes to that point.
