About Us

TriCity Worms is a small e-commerce business that begun its journey in the City of Coquitlam, British Columbia. We sell compost worms and vermicompost (worm castings). The worms are also popular among fishermen for live bait, and reptile owners for feed. Worm composting is a great way to help reduce your household organic waste. While many municipalities have an organic waste pick up program, a truckload of organic waste can easily end up in the landfill due to contamination of inorganic waste. Through vermicomposting, you can see the process of upcycling your organic waste into an amazing fertilizer, also known as black gold, in front of your own eyes! Even though we have no physical store front, we partnered with BOSS Business Centre in City of Burnaby in June 2022 to accommodate for the much in demand pick-up orders. For more information on pick-up orders, please visit our FAQ page.

My name is Cherry and I started vermicomposting to reduce my household waste and create my own organic fertilizers for my little vegetable garden I start up every spring. Slowly, the love for breeding worms took over and I decided to sell composting worms as a small business. The upscaling of the business started in winter of 2020. As I live in an apartment, the worm farms had to be set up in my mother's backyard. A friend in City of Vancouver generously offering me their backyard as well, allowing me to increase the number of worm farms and produce more vermicompost. In exchange, my mother and friend get free worm castings for their gardens! In order to continue to invest and grow the business, I still work full-time. The dream is to eventually acquire a piece of farm land for the worm farm!
