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.
Pennies to Feed Families! Earth's General Store Collects Discontinued Canadian Pennies for the Edmonton Food Bank
Earth’s General Store wants not only to reduce the footprint of these coins, help to eliminate the cost to our government when making them (1.6 cents to produce a 1 cent token – not good fiscal responsibility), and but to channel this currency into doing some good locally.
Earth's General Store has installed a pail in our store to collect pennies and will deposit them to our local Servus Credit Union when full and the funds raised will be donated to the Edmonton Food Bank. We encourage anyone to drop off their extra pennies to fill the pail – get those pennies out of the jars on your dresser, from the depth of your sofa, from wherever people are stockpiling them and put them out into the world to do some good.
It is estimated that it will take about 30,000 pennies to fill our 20L pail. That’s about $300 and would weigh approximately 75 kilogram.
