The Worm Inn


The Worm Factory




































What Is a Red Wiggler? is a children's book introducing the use of red wiggler worms for composting food scraps and more. Megan shows how to set up a red wiggler worm bin and how to harvest the castings. Eric's photos and renderings of the inside of a worm show the importance of this very special worm. A journal is included for observations about the worms. The book is a current commentary on disposing of our food scraps, rather than them going to the landfill. The worm castings are the best soil enhancer a gardener can use, eliminating chemical fertilizer.

The Earth Moved

The Earth Moved

by Amy Stewart

This is a fascinating exploration of the underground world and one of its most amazing denizens. The earthworm may be small, spineless, and blind, but its role in the ecosystem is profound. It tills the soil, destroys microscopic organisms that cause plant disease, breaks down toxins, and turns the ground into rich compost, creating the most fertile areas on earth. In her witty and offbeat style, Amy Stewart shows just how much depends on the humble worm.
