The wormery of red wigglers


Burnaby Red Wigglers is a “green” business located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. Worm composting (vermiculture-vermicomposting) is getting more popular because compost worms or red wigglers increase the speed of composting. It produces high quality worm castings or vermicompost rich in beneficial soil microbes, plant growth regulators and nutrients for plants. The excess of the worm is an excellent source of protein and it can be used for fishing. Worm composting is safe for the environment.

The pictures of wormery above are the most common worm composter or vermicomposter used by the customers to process their kitchen, paper and garden wastes using red wigglers. Buy it…or Make it… for condo, household and school wormeries: Can O Worms, Worm Factory, Worm Inn and City of Vancouver wormeries. The last four wormeries can be made by yourself. The medium until larger scale wormeries are promising to support the Zero Waste program using Hungry Bin, CityPod composter and Continuous-Flow vermicomposter. The pictures including the information of the three systems can be seen in the former publications of Burnaby Red Wigglers in November and December 2014 on this WordPress blog.

Starting locally for a better habitat is our mission. Supported by the vision to reach globally in five continents through networking, consultation services, research and education. Burnaby Red Wigglers has been supplying the worms, cocoons and worm castings for the worm composting workshop or wormshop program of City Farmer Vancouver for over 3 years. This program has been supported by the City of Vancouver for over 20 years, and this is the oldest workshop program on household vermicomposting in the world. Burnaby Red Wigglers has been participating and posting for open discussion regularly to the Vermicomposting Network in LinkedIn. Last Spring 2014 Burnaby Red Wigglers won the first place in competition for the logo red wigglers photo of the Vermicomposting Network with over 800 international members. After a year in FaceBook page, Burnaby Red Wigglers are on the way to reach a new milestone to get 500 organic likes.

Thank you for continuing support and doing business with us.

    There is a very good variety of interesting articles on this website.
    Today, Sunday May 24, 2020, I just bought 2 starter kits: a) one for the large outside bin, 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft and b) the other smaller one will be for our household scraps and also my friend will be bringing over some of her kitchen food scrapes.
    It will be both interesting and exciting to see how these hard working red wigglers will take care of our green waste materials and turn them into very nutritious food for all of our plants.
    I found Bintoro Gunadi to be very knowledgeable and also very helpful and kind in guiding me to properly set up my first 2 working compost bins in White Rock, BC.
    I am also very grateful that I was able to purchase my red wigglers at a moments notice on a Sunday afternoon.
    Very good and prompt service, thank you very much, Henry Sikorski.
