We recently received our packages of red worms and worm compost from
http://organicandmechanic.ecrater.com/ and have set up our worm bins. We used to raise worms when we lived in NY, but have not since we moved to
SC. We will be using the worm compost to make potting soil (combined with recycled coconut coir ( http://www.rolanka.com/ ), and composted horse and chicken manure/bedding), and selling the worms to local fishermen and gardeners.
For folks who are struggling financially, We have been giving away localized (cultural and zone rated) heirloom seed packs from http://www.hometownseeds.com/ along with above potting soil mix, recycled buckets, and information packs on container gardening, seed saving, and food storage (canning and drying), and rain water harvesting / self watering containers.
For SC specific info, see
http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/vegetables/gardening/hgic1255.html, but each state has a similar website for their local conditions. Contact me if you can’t find it, as I’m making a list of each states resources.
If you know someone who is struggling financially, and will use these materials to feed their family and teach others, let me know, and I’ll see what I can do. Anyone that wants to start their own service, or support us in ours, I’ll be happy to share our information or accept donations. It’s sort of a modern day Johnny “Veggie” Seed instead of Appleseed.
