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.
Organic Lives Founder Preet Marwaha to give talk at Earth's General Store - "The Skinny on Fats and Carbs"
Ever wonder what the deal with Fats and Carbs are? “Don’t eat that because it will make you fat”, “You need fats to facilitate processes in your body”, “Carbs gives you energy”, “Fats clog up your body” etc. Lots of difference of opinion and research.
Earth’s General Store is hosting Organic Lives founder Preet Marwaha on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at 7:00pm at our store (9605 - 82 Avenue) and he will address these question with his talk entitled - “The Skinny on Fats and Carbs.” The information that Preet will impart will help each of us understand the balance that we need to achieve to eat healthy.
This is a FREE Event but you will need to pre-register for this presentation. You can do this through the EventBrite website.
Preet Marwaha, through his passion for food, health and healing the planet started OrganicLives as a means to facilitate change. A change that is required in the way that we connect with our food and the systems that produce our food, to enable an understanding of the impact these choices have on our health, that of the planet and all of its inhabitants. OrganicLives is the real life representation of ethical sustainable commerce that enriches lives from grower to consumer.
Preet’s personal journey of health began 21 years ago when he was battling an illness that nearly brought his life to an end. After one and a half years of what became routine emergency hospital visits and heavy doses of drugs, he checked himself in and refused to leave until a solution was found. Ten days of testing for what seemed like every disease known to the medical system led to their conclusion that there was something wrong with his brain (what they were really saying is that this was all in his head) and a series of CAT Scans were done. After finding nothing, it was suggested that he should be sent to a gastroenterologist, who after several hours of testing stated that the only course of action was to remove his intestines and provide him with a colostomy bag. This is where it all stopped and his refusal to have this surgery was met with criticism and a certain path to death. Preet, through a dear friend and reading John Robbin’s Diet For A New America, made a complete change in the the way he was going to eat, think and live for the rest of his life. Thirteen months later, his life was coming back to normal and the power of food had been fully engrained in his psyche and a whole new path and passion had begun.
Today, Preet is busy promoting and supporting the values of healthy eating and living through the many talks and courses that he conducts.
As an instructor with the Institute of Holistic Nutrition he teaches Nutrition & The Environment and Holistic Food Preparation. He also spends his time as a personal health coach, teaching at the OrganicLives Education Centre and performing public health talks for schools and corporations.
In addition, his passion for organic sustainable agriculture has led him into numerous projects locally and in developing nations around the globe. Preet has been involved globally on numerous projects including the World Wellness Project, Safe Planet Campaign and the United Nations Environment Programme.
You will certainly have the opportunity to meet him in person at the OrganicLives restaurant (1829 Quebec Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada) where much of his time is spent interacting, educating and entertaining their guests.
