Compost Guy Ultimate

Your One Source for Worm Composting Education, Inspiration & Assistance!




being or happening at the end of a process; final


the best achievable or imaginable of its kind

More than 20 years ago, I looked inside a small plastic bin sitting under a co-worker’s desk and saw something amazing – even life changing.

It's funny putting it in those terms, thinking back to that sad little squirm of Red Wiggler worms clustered around an apple core. But, it wasn’t the worms themselves; it was the process at work, the overall ‘big idea’ of what was happening in the bin that blew my mind. These unassuming little creatures had been taking what many others were literally tossing in the trash, and turning it into something incredible.

That very same day, I went home with a bucket of ‘wormy’ material (my kindly co-worker had gifted me) and I haven’t looked back since.

In case we haven’t “met” yet, my name is Bentley “Compost Guy” Christie, and I’ve been sharing this quirky passion of mine “with the world” for more than 15 years via the Red Worm Composting blog/newsletter and other online outlets.

In 2008, I decided to turn the “quirky passion” into a “quirky career”, largely focused on educating/inspiring as many people as possible in the ways of the worm.

Over the years, “funding” this educational endeavor has involved operating a small vermicomposting business (in the real world and online) and launching a handful of educational products and memberships.

As time passed, I realized that more and more independent projects meant more and more time and energy being needed just to manage them all (and less time for other important work).

I decided I should consolidate most of them into an all-in-one package - and thus Compost Guy Ultimate (CGU) was born!

What is CGU & Who is it For?

Simply put, CGU is a course bundle and membership designed for those who are ready to make worm composting/farming a bigger part of their lives.

If you are looking for high quality information, support/guidance, and inspiration in this field you can’t go wrong.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, a seasoned “worm warrior”, or someone heading down the worm business path, I can help you reach your goals.

"I can say that because of you and your information, I made my mind up, after years of research and study to get into the vermicomposting business.

It was your info that convinced me to finally go for it. I’m a very beginner as far as practical application is concerned. So the education I learned from you gave me the confidence to know I could be successful.

Thank you so very much and I know I will continue to learn reading your educational material."

What's Included:

  • Suburban Worm Farmer - My original course focused on the "Worm Mix" starter culture worm business concept. It contains audio lessons with supplementary educational resources. Value: $37

  • Trench Vermicomposting - Back in 2008 I stumbled on the idea of vermicomposting trenches out of necessity (due to a restaurant vermicomposting project that got out of hand), and it was a total game-changer for me in multiple ways. This course includes written lessons, along with my (1 hr+) video presentation from one of Marjory Wildcraft's "Homegrown Food Summits". Value: $27

  • Walking Windrow Project - An unusual set of circumstances in the summer of 2018 resulted in me being invited to launch a large-scale vermicomposting project on a local country property. This "follow along" documents how I ran with this opportunity. Value: $27

  • Easy Vermicomposting - My original home vermicomposting how-to series, this course is ideal for anyone wanting to learn the fundamentals. It consists primarily of audio lessons (great for downloading and listening while you do other things), but includes other supplementary content. Value: $17

  • VermBin Series Plans Package - Back in 2011 I crossed paths with a vermicomposting hobbyist named Joe Denial. It just so happens that Joe is an expert designer/builder, and when he showed me the amazing specs for his DIY flow-through bin I asked him if he wanted to team up. The rest, as they say, is history! Plans for 3 sizes of "VermBin", along with related educational content, are included. Value: $14

  • Website-Creation Training - Anyone planning to turn worm farming into a business venture has to accept the fact that an online presence is critically important. A key part of that is some form of website. I've included extensive training relating to the WordPress platform, along with a smaller series featuring the more basic "Google Sites" platform. Value: $27

  • Unlimited Compost Guy Support/Guidance - The CGU membership automatically grants you full "pestering rights" (not even kidding -lol). I am happy to answer as many questions as you can send my way - and always try to respond to CGUers as quickly as I possibly can. If it helps to hop on a FB messenger (etc) to clarify something, no problem. I'm here to help! Value: ??

  • Special CGU-Exclusive Freebies & Deals - Some new (worm-related) educational products may be added to the membership at no charge. Others will be made available to members at a steep discount. Value: ??

Total Real-World Value = $149+

"…you should know that your website was a big help for me when I got into vermicomposting back in 2010, and in many ways, that was the launching point that propelled me at a neck-breaking velocity into a whole new lifestyle, so I owe you a great deal of thanks…

…Thanks for all that you do, and all that you have done!"

"Does This Include Easy Worm Farming?"

Great question! Easy Worm Farming is not technically included with CGU, but it is available at a steep discount (more than 50% off) for any members who are interested in it. NOTE: Easy Vermicomposting is a different course, and IS included with CGU.

“I’ve purchased some of these individual products in the past. Do I qualify for a discount?”

If money is a concern, absolutely – don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss this further. I will be more than happy to help out with some form of discount. For anyone else, please keep in mind that this is currently a greatly-reduced one-time price for a course bundle (and more) you will have permanent access to. Investment in this package now gives you access to ALL future updates. It also helps to support all the publicly-available content I continue to publish.

“How does the Worm Farming Alliance differ from Compost Guy Ultimate?”

The Worm Farming Alliance has changed a fair bit over the years. It was originally launched as an “everything Worm Farming” type of membership, but we then streamlined it to the point of primarily being a networking/mentorship community for people interested or already involved in the worm farming industry. Compost Guy Ultimate is much more focused on education, and all of the help/mentorship comes from me (i.e. you don't get to tap into the same "brain trust"). Both are excellent resources, but for different reasons.

“I love your work and want to support your mission, but am not interested in joining CGU at this time. Are there other ways to contribute?”

Sure thing (and thank-you)! If you visit my CG Educational Resources page, you will find not only a full line-up of my available products, but also (closer to the bottom) other ways to support my work, including donations, consulting calls, and affiliate products you may be interested in.

"What Happens After I Join?"

Immediately after joining you should be taken to a thank-you page, and you should receive several important e-mails: 1) An order receipt, 2) An e-mail re: how to access the CG Portal member area (where you will find most of the resources in the CGU package), and 3) A welcome e-mail from the CGU e-mail list. If you encounter any problems, or have any questions, please let me know and I will be happy to help! NOTE: 1) Easy Worm Farming is also currently found inside the course portal as well and, unless you've purchased it separately, will be the only resource you can't access, and 2) The VB plans package is found in a separate member area you will be provided with access to.

"Is There a CGU Affiliate Program?"

Absolutely! You can promote CGU and earn 50% commissions for any new members you refer. This program is usually reserved for existing members, but I'm happy to make exceptions in cases where a non-CGUer is eager to promote the package. Just drop me a line and let me know!

"I think I have been in at or near the ground level of most of your major projects over the years and that is because you have great ideas and I believe in you and the things you are working to accomplish. You have had an enormous impact on the world of vermiculture and inspired many people, my friend."
