My kickstarter for a flow-thru worm composting bin ends on Earth Day
If you have been thinking about worm composting or you are now that you’ve read about it or you just want a new t-shirt – check it out.
Worm compost is great stuff, it’s easy and it’s cheap.
Check out my Kickstarter. It’s a great way to get started.
Since my last post in December I have held 2 workshops, spoke at 4 schools (three more coming up), spoke to 1 garden club and will be at the Indy Winter Farmers Market tomorrow. I will also be in Danville on April 26th at Gardening For All Ages and on May 2nd at Orchard and Bloom. My Filthy Rich Dirt Cheap Kickstarter campaign started on March 20th and runs through Earth Day. Check it out and share with friends at — http://kck.st/1lRvl1C
I have 18-gallon and 30-gallon totes and 10-gallon and 23-gallon flow-thrus available for that “special”, hard to buy for person. All my bins are working bins with worms and compost ready for a new home. The smaller of each type is $30 and the larger is $50.
You can’t even buy the worms on-line for these prices.
For those that already have a bin, my worm starter kits are $20 per bag which includes worms, cocoons, compost, etc.
Saturday Nov. 30th downtown Indy. I’ll have worms, worm compost, worm composting bins (with worms) and DIY chicken treats (not worms). The market is awesome so come out, say hi and support your favorite local vendors on Small Business Saturday.
Monday night 6/17 at the Fishers Public Library (HEPL – Fishers) at 7:00pm.
Hope to see you there.
Short live clip on WXIN Fox-59 to kick off the summer at Indy Urban Acres.

Saturday 8 to Noon in its new location around the new amphitheater in the town’s municipal complex. I’ll have bins, worms, compost and tea.
This spring has been full of classrooms, garden clubs, flower shows and of course Earth Day. It has been good so far. Looking forward to the Farmer’s Market Season. Stop by and pick up your worm stuff, ask questions or just say hi. It’s a great way to start off your Memorial Day weekend. Worms make a great graduation or wedding gift – Ha!
See you Saturday.
March 22nd is World Water Day. According to the UN, 780 Million people do not have access to clean, safe water.
JVP is trying to change that in the village of Kager, Kenya. Sign up to Walk for Water here http://www.walk-for-water.org
Check out the Urban Homestead exhibit at the Flower and Patio Show at the State Fairgrounds. It starts on March 9th and runs through March 17th. There will be presenters daily covering topics such as bees, chickens, rain barrels, etc. I will be speaking about composting on March 12th and 16th @ 11:00 in the Expo Building. Hope to see you there.
