Good Worming! Nordic Worming News
Let me, as my first "official" action today, tell you about the Nordic Worming web shop.
I know the timing isn't the best to have technical difficulties, but such things happen - usually when you less need it. Unfortunately, the progressive price model I developed doesn't exactly fit into "normal" web shop programs. The shop will be available under shop.nordicworming.com and connections are secured by SSL. My sincere apologies to all people who have been asking for prices and products. A partial answer will be in the next section.
As I said in my previous post, no news is good news! I was right...
That's why I'm happy to announce that there are new neighbours in town! :-)
This boys are hungry and in good shape! We put them (with several hundreds of their kind and some of the material they were living in) into one of the freshly set-up breeder bins.
Two weeks have passed since the opening party, and I am here again to thank people.
Thank you to our guests, taking time on a Friday evening to listen to a couple of guys talking about worms. Thank you for your interest for this quite unusual topic and for your questions. It was great to have you here!
And thank you to my faithful friends, helpers, supporters and, of course, my lovely wife and kids. It's wonderful to have so good people around me!
And before I forget... A big big thank goes to Marcel for his graffiti interpretation on the Nordic Worming logo.
To respect everyone's privacy, I'm not posting pictures of the audience.
So, what is the news?
- After struggling for quite a while, I eventually got help from Mrs. Borg from Hämeen ELY-keskus with the filling of a form to be allowed to transport waste. Submitted it last Thursday. Friday I got informed that the decision is (already!) on it's way. So no more jokes about slow functionaries please!
- I made agreements with one of my neighbours to make outdoor tests in reduced scale.We'll see how the worms perform with cow manure during the summer. I'm sure they will do great, but we'll have a proof soon!
- A Helsinki based wholesaler is interested in selling vermicompost "made in Finland" and we already made some agreements.
- I get often asked "How are the worms?". They're doing fine and we have a whole lot of babies!
More news will follow soon!
Thanks for reading and worm regards :-)
The new neighbours (and their shepherd) would like to thank everyone who helped to put out the fire that happened outside our premises last saturday evening!
Without your quick help, bad things could have happened! So, even if the worms cannot thank you personally, let me thank you also in their name.
And a special thank goes to the firefighters from Orimattila, who came so quickly and definitively killed the fire by soaking the whole place!
Thanks for reading and worm regards!
