Texas radio host and author Bruce Deuley introduces us to Nature’s perfect plow — earthworms, which can plow acres of land each year, able to till 3 to 5 feet deep!
In this 10 minute podcast, you’ll learn:
- How many earthworms you should have in a 6-inch deep square foot of healthy soil
- How earthworms till both vertically and horizontally, literarlly eating their way through the dirt
- Why vermicompost produced by earthworms is Deuley’s number one preferred supplement for feeding flowers, fruits and vegetables, including how they can cut your irrigation cost by as much as 50 percent
Deuley also shares the details of a fascinating experiment that proves just how surprisingly effective earthworms can be at destroying deadly E. coli bacteria.
