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.
World Food Day 15% Off Sale at Earth's General Store
Tomorrow, Tuesday October 16th, 2012, is World Food Day (http://tinyurl.com/4bbc2d) and we wanted to make a statement. Everyone in the world deserves access to good quality, healthy, and enough to nourish their bodies.
Earth's General Store wants people to experience food grown without pesticides and so we are having one of our rare 15% sale days. That is right EVERYTHING in the store is 15% off.
If you ever wanted to get a dehydrator, juicer, ceramic knives, or get a good variety of cookbooks then this is the day to do it!
One of the major issues around food is the amount that we waste. Though a substantial amount of waste is generated through the food production process it is estimated that the kitchen produces between 30% - 50% of the total food waste – so the power of reducing this waste percentage lies with us.
To highlight the amount of waste being generated we are hosting a screening of the documentary ‘Diving’ (www.divethefilm.com/) on World Food Day starting at 7:30pm. In addition to the screening there will be at least one local Freegan in attendance to facilitate a discussion following the documentary.
This sale applies only to items that are in the store – no rain checks and all purchases need to be done in person.
