  • Earthworms tunnel through the soil allowing air and moisture to pass through. An aerated soil allows bacteria to break down organic matter within the soil.
  • Earthworms produce an excrement called “Castings”. They improve the porosity and hold moisture in the soil.
  • A healthy soil is the basis of a healthy garden! If your soil has these qualities your plants will grow larger and be able to fight off pests and diseases.
  • Come in to purchase a container of worm castings and add liquid organic fertilizers to increase your population of worms!
