Update #2

New rewards! "Hot Compost" 2013 Calendar and Vermicompost-tea kits to jumpstart your plants.

Comment

New rewards just in time for calendar season and early-bird gift potentials - sure to knock the compost right off your boots! If these don't get you hot, or your compost pile for that matter, nothing will. Be sure to watch an endorsement from our local mechanics below.

In addition to our new calendar pictured below, we have assembled kits of vermicomost-tea. The tea will have magical results with your house and garden plants. You can also use the vermicompost -an ultra high quality compost created by worms- on its own to top-dress house and garden plants. Kit includes one U.S.-made muslin brew bag, one compostable U.S.-made measuring/mixing spoon, one quart Vermont-made vermicompost, and directions on how to brew your vermi-tea, the miracle tea of tomorrow. Just don't drink it.
