Discover the recycling and rebuilding of soil in the research and carrying for Red Wigglers for the garden to produce food rich in nutrients.

First The Research

One summer project may be the discovery of Red Wiggler, earthworms, being more than fish bait. They build soil, enrich it's nutrients with very little expense, and can be a fun activity. On the computer search for Red Wigglers, then fish bate, composting and soil and garden improvement. Find what their home should be like, what they eat,
What they do and what you can do with them.

Red Wiggler Culture

Red Wigglers are of the Eisenia fetida species that are rarely found in soil but to well
in loose vegetation, They can live in boxes, two feet by two feet, filled with slightly moist , not too wet, organic waste, shredded paper, coffee grounds, egg shells peelings, kitchen scraps garden waste with a few handfuls of soil mixed in. They live well in temperatures 55 to 77 degrees.

Worm Farm

Children may enjoy a worm farm or worm factory and find new activities and interests.
Because the worms multiply fast they may need more area in a few months so could be divided into more boxes or add a few to a small mulched flower bed.
A fisherman friend may enjoy a few.
