vermiculite ? you surely meant vermicompost - I assume.
Check out http://vermicomposters.com/ for all of your worm related information. The message board over there is entirely dedicated to all things wiggler.
they'll even find their way into compost tumblers, mine are the type that sit on a container-base with rollers and captures the compost leachate "tea".one of the bins is teeming with wigglers now. i will move that all inside very soon because it just started snowing here!. i guess there might be 1/2 lb-1 lb of worms, not really enough yet to process ALL our kitchen waste, so after exhaustive searching i found an Ebay seller with very good prices ($9 per pound on 3lbs+) and perfect feedback,everyone had positive comments on their worms . i won an auction on 5 lbs for $45,and another 15 for shipping.
In my experience, worms from an active compost pile will generally work in a worm bin. If you get worms from the internet you have no guarantee on the the species anyways. If you can, find someone with a worm bin and get a few scoops of their wormy dirt to add to your bin.
My bin moved from temperate Cali to Utah so I'll be running my first indoor bin this winter. I plan on using the "flow through" design
Yep i second that, oh wait, i mean YOU second that,since i posted it above back in january cheesy tongue

new to the site and a beginner composter. Very excited to begin doing my part in rebuilding abused soil in my area and my part in reducing the unnecessary waste in landfills.
I am looking for someone who might know where to look for Red Wrigglers in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Im an hour north of there and could drive. It just seems like the most likely place near me to find them.
