We order the worms on Wednesday 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.
Earth's General Store Idle Free Zone Parking Lot

Local Store Creates Idle Free Zone Parking Lot
Edmonton – On February 2nd, 2011 Earth’s General Store erected ‘Idle Free Zone’ signs around their parking lot to let vehicle operators know that they should consider the health of the community before leaving their vehicle running while they are visiting the store.
“It looks like city council is not going create an excessive idling bylaw which will make Edmonton a healthier city therefore we need to independently create awareness and idling free zones and hopefully this will bring about change in our community,” says Earth's General Store owner Michael Kalmanovitch.
Idling is recognized as an inefficient use of fuel (you get ZERO miles to the gallon), causes needless wear and tear on engines, creates pollution without any real benefit since the benefit of a vehicle is transportation and the vehicle is not being used for transportation then there is no benefit beyond the warming up of the passenger compartment, and is a financial burden on the vehicle owner.
“Several other Edmonton businesses and schools have created Idling Free Zones and Earth's General Store is very pleased to be yet another Idling Free Zone in the city. City Councillors really should get with the programme like many other cities and towns across Canada. An excessive idling bylaw will help achieve a healthier local environment, especially around schools and such places. Excessive idling is bad citizenship,” adds Mr. Kalmanovitch.
