Welcome to Urban Worm Girl
Urban Worm Girl, L3C has been an industry leader in community-based vermicomposting since 2008. We have been introducing this innovative sustainability practice to the Chicago area through educational programming, residential and commercial worm compost bin installations, classroom education, and public outreach campaigns. Through our efforts, and the efforts of our clients, hundreds of tons of waste have been diverted from the commercial waste stream and converted into nutrient-rich soil with the help from a few hungry worms.
In March 2011, we released our first book, Composting Inside & Out: 14 Methods to Fit Your Lifestyle as an all-purpose guide to educate people on the various forms of composting and how to best incorporate composting into our busy lives.
Meet the worms around town! Visit our Events Page to join us at an upcoming workshop, festival, or farmers market and introduce yourself to the red wigglers. You can check out the latest composting techniques, purchase products, and begin your own adventures in composting. If you would like to pick up equipment, please contact us to ensure product availability. And soon you'll be saying, "Worms Ate My Garbage....And Keep Eating!"
