Thought of the Week

Add more worms to your soil, and you will have
a healthier crop-bed, lawn and garden!

Burrows left by worms are nature's own system for collecting rainwater in the soil where plant roots can suck it up.  This gives less water runoff to strip away valuable topsoil and deposit chemicals in waterways..."
