Meet our Happy Customers:
Atena and Christoph
Atena and Christoph have two young children, and a very busy life. They humored me with "beta-testing" one of my early Hungry Tiger systems (to keep me quiet!).
When they started they had little experience with composting kitchen waste, but now they recycle 100% of their organics through the Hungry Tiger.
"It's easy and amazing - the waste just disappears," says Atena. They moved household once, and the system shifted easily.
They can harvest 4 buckets of vermicast every 3-4 months.
With working full time, and participating in many extra-curricular activities, Jean wanted a system that was easy and fit into her busy lifestyle. She had never composted organic waste, or had a garden, but when she became a homeowner, she inherited a huge organic garden.
With her two housemates, Jean's household of 3 hungry vegetarians recycle all their household organics - including lots of brown lunch bags, paper toilet rolls, paper packaging.
"I didn't think I could do it, but Annmarie made it easy - and it's amazing to watch the waste just disappear," says Jean. Her garden certainly responds well to the regular supply of vermicast.
Shannon is my "DIY champion". For many years he watched me work with the worms, taking bags of food scraps from his home. Despite offers for free systems and heaps of discussions, he refused to take the bite.
"You won't get me recycling food scraps", he'd say - "I'm too busy." This went on for three years!
Shannon works full time, and cares for his two kids much of the week. He loves to work around his home and build things, so one day he built his own worm bin, and called me for the right worms.
Now, he's recycling 100% of his kitchen scraps, occasionally snagging food scraps from his friends, he stopped taking grass clippings to the tip... and now frequently shows off his worms (he's so proud). Personally, I think I've created a monster! Anyway, he's one of my favorite recycling heros, because he turned a complete 180. Although Shannon relied on me for advice - He D.I.Y.'d the rest!
Annmarie of Chch
The grandkids gave Annmarie her Can-O-Worms recycling system, and then bought the Compost Worms from Earthly Delights. When she picked the worms up at the factory, she also paid a visit to Worm Alley. Like many other customers, Annmarie was able to see her systems in action, along side other styles of worm farms, and talk about how to manage her Can-O-Worms.
"I've learned so much, and feel so much more confident" says Annmarie. "And the extra supplies make it much more easy."
Annmarie received supplies and instructions to "jump-start" the Can-O-Worms so it matures much faster. Earthly Delights also showed Annmarie how to clean the system, and how to get more waste through the unit and keep it healthy.

Gothic Heights Motel
Gothic Heights Motel - Tui and Ian Sutton have a strong Environmental Commitment in running their motel business. They approached Earthly Delights for a worm farm, and then later built their own, larger worm farm to handle the waste from their guests. Earthly Delights provided support, supplies (worms, buckets), and on-going enthusiasm! They've reduced their rubbish nearly 80%, and getting better everyday! Find them at 430 Hagley Ave Chch,
W-L from Singapore
W-L from Singapore - This lovely person contacted me from Singapore to arrange for a worm farm to be sent anonymously to her best friend living in Hamilton as a birthday present. We supplied a special package and on-going support for her friend, who is now into Real Recycling with Worms! She wrote: 'Many thanks for your help and willingness to share information, and for going that extra mile to spruce up the surprise gift for my friend ... It was a pleasure communicating with you!'
