CANADA'S BEST RED WIGGLER
Werking Worms is an urban worm farm located in the heart of Canada’s capital- Ottawa. We are dedicated to reducing the environmental impact food waste has on our planet by putting worms to werk!
Food waste that is sent to landfill will eventually decompose to generate potent greenhouse gass. Our goal is to make vermicomposting easy and accessible so that more people can reduce their environmental impact through the magic of worm composting.
We offer FREE shipping Canada wide as well as curbside pickup in the winter months.

What is Vermicomposting?
Vermicomposting is a method of composting where worms eat up organic matter - like food scraps - and excrete super fertile soil called worm castings. Yes, it’s actually that simple!
The Perks of Vermicomposting
- There is no smell!
- Food is composted at room temperature
- Minimal effort required
- Only 1 sqft space needed
“What we compost today, becomes the soil of tomorrow”
It’s estimated that 40% of food in a household will end up in the trash, and eventually buried in a landfill. Food waste that decomposes in a landfill doesn't have access to fresh oxygen from the atmosphere. This lack of oxygen during decomposition generates greenhouse gasses like methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Vermicomposting is an easy and effective way to break this cycle!
