Services, Classes and Contact


Interested in getting your own bin started or bringing composting into your class or office?  I offer a full range of consulting and education services.   From answering questions via e-mail, providing in home support to stopping by your classroom to help set up a worm composting bin – I will happily assist in any way possible.  I do not charge a fee for my services I simply ask that you pass along the love, knowledge and excitement to family and friends.  I am able to bring and indoor worm composting set up based on your needs to your home or class (reimbursement fees do apply) or you find out when my next Worm Composting 101 class is and stop by the pick up a starter kit!

Starter Kit ($15) includes:    

  1. Small sized compost bin with air holes
  2. 100 red worms
  3. Recycled bedding
  4. Knowledge and support

Typical at home or class set up ($35 – $55) includes:

  1. Large sized compost bin with air holes
  2. 300 to 500 red worms
  3. Recycled bedding
  4. Knowledge and support

Prices can fluctuate depending on needs; I highly recommend reusing an old plastic bin and your own news paper or brown paper bags.  The best option is always to reuse and recycle what you already have.  On the other hand, if you want a bigger set up or a tier composting bin set up there will be additional reimbursement fees.

    I took your class at whole foods and got some worms, unfortunately they didn’t survive. I will start again soon, however I have been saving all the scraps to understand how much we produce. But now I need a give away the scraps. Do you know of any place that I can drop those off?

    Hi Stephanie, this is Mary your Uncle Mark’s friend. I have wanted to start worm composting and he mentioned your website. I want an outside worm composter as I live in Florida. Is it too hot here? I’d be interested in a starter bin that would work in Florida.

    Thanks, Mary
