Eliminating chemical fertilizers
Food additives and worm recipes...really.
Red Worms or Red Wrigglers are truly champs when it comes to composting. You don't even have to train them. They just do it naturally. They can turn almost any organic material into a nutrient rich high grade fertilizer some call Black Gold.
Traditional compost piles take weeks to make a low grade humus that, if not used correctly, can burn and damage your plants. Now, get this. A pound of hard working Red Wrigglers can turn a pound of leaves, grass clippings or even household garbage into a pound of top quality, high-grade manure in only 24 hours. It's not just rotten organic debris. Rather, It's actually digested worm castings (Manure) that won't burn even the most delicate seedlings.
Worms improve lawn and garden soil
It's a fact that good fertile soil is full of worms. It's also known that poor soil has no worms. but few people realize that adding worms to poor soil, eliminating chemical use and giving the little guys/gals some food and water can quickly turn poor soil into the very best top soil. How they do it:
1. They make burrows and tunnels that let water and nutrients reach plants root systems. Red Wrigglers are best at this for lawns and gardens because they work close to the surface. Whereas, night crawlers may go down five feet or more to find a home. This burrowing loosens the soil and aerates it. 2. Worms eat and digest their body weight every day, producing a 100% natural fertilizer know as castings. 3. Worms castings are: 5 Times Richer in Nitrogen, 7 Times Richer In Phosphates and 11 Times Richer In Potash than the average top soil
