Gearing up for Fall!

Fall is around the corner and we are performing operational maintenace this coming weekend (Aug 16th).  The lovely event includes extensive cleaning, moving our worm tubs into a new location, taking care of our red wigglers (rest day) and website management.  We are very excited about our upcoming schedule with the Green Fest at the Uptown Theater on Aug 23rd!  Sarah and I will miss our favorite spot on Saturdays, the KC City Market, however we intend to be back before long.  Thank you to all those who have purchased a worm kit and have approached your waste in a fun new way.  Happy Worming.

A Good (and hot!) Day at the Little Green Festival

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at the second annual Little Green Festival.

We had a great time meeting some of the 115 vendors at the festival.  And it was fantastic to hang out with all the folks who turned out despite the death-defying heat (Douglas County’s heat index was 108 degrees!).

The Lawrence Journal World & News came by and chatted with us for a bit.  They have a great write-up of the event and the day.  (Photo by Thad Allender.)

See you at the Little Green Festival!

The theme at the Little Green Festival in Lawrence, KS this year is Do one thing green.” And with over 100 booths of green businesses and community groups lined up you’ll no doubt find more than one green idea! See our listing under the Lifestyle section of their Green Directory.

And if you need some more inspiration between now and Saturday, check out a great gardening resource called You Grow Girl! Gayla Trail, an avid urban gardener who runs this thriving online community, recently posted about her new worm bin!

“I have to admit though I love having a bin of worms living with me….They’re fun to have around, especially if you have kids, and those suckers (the worms, not the kids) will eat their body mass in food scraps daily. Worm poo is some of the best stink-free organic fertilizers you can also make yourself.”

And you can pick up your own bin of worms (or just the poo!) at the green worm booth–check out the schedule here. See you this Saturday in Lawrence!
