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.
Ever Expanding BULK Spice and Herb Offering at Earth's General Store
We are slowly expanding our herb and spice bulk selection. Today we added Green Cardamon Pods, Raw Carob Powder, Asafoetida Powder (Hing Powder), Ras El Hanout Spice Blend (a essential Moroccan spice) Spanish Paprika powder and Black Pepper powder (we only carried the black peppercorns – as well as the white ones) to our excellent offer.
These spices and ingredients complement our extensive offering of culinary ingredients. I do not believe you will find any other place in Edmonton and possible in Western Canada that offers such a wide assortment of bulk herbs, spices and cooking/baking ingredients – many of which are certified organic.
Many items we can’t get at the moment in a certified Organic version but being bulk certainly helps address many other environmentally negatives that regular over packaged herbs and spices cause.
Sometimes it shocks people when they see a bulk product on our shelves priced in kilograms. They see certified organic bay leaves in a container for $65.75/kg on one of our shelves and think that is a lot of money. What they may not understand is that it takes about 4,000 leaves to make a kilogram! One of my earlier blog where I did a price comparison on an organic bottle of bay leaves fro Safeway where it was being sold for $6.09. This works out to over $1,200/kg. When you compare apples to apples then it is VERY well priced. I very much suspect that the same savings would be found right across the board on our offering of bulk herb and spices.
PS – do bring in your own containers and bags since we are also trying to reduce our collective footprint from the over consumption of containers. The bottles you already have make for a wonderful container for your new bulk spices from us.
So please consider buying your herbs, spices and cooking/baking ingredients in bulk – save money, save packaging and help save the planet one refill at a time.
