Employing worms in organic gardening is wonderful for aerating the soil, keeping the soil active and loose, and aiding with composting.

A good fertilizer or a good compost is worm castings, which is the feces from the worms, plus the worms themselves. It's really great stuff.

What we have done in lawns in the past, is when we have aerated, we have actually taken the worms physically and kind of thrown them out on the lawn getting them to go within the ground. We use products like Medina Soil Activator, molasses, and seaweed, this is what feeds them and keeps them going. That is not exactly what they all do but that is part of what the process does and they help keep the soil alive and loose by the worms being active.

They do the same thing in the garden with their traveling, they are churning and keeping the soil loose and that is the prime thing so you don't have drainage problems and so forth.

When you are digging in your gardens or on your lawn, if you are doing an edge or something like that and you see worms in there, it's a sign to you that you have very good fertile soil.
