Ways to Get Involved

Wriggly worm farm fun

Tuesday, 11 Jan 2022

Worms are fascinating creatures that are a very important part of our environment.

Worms are super little workers in the garden that improve the soil by:

  • Creating tunnels that help plant roots grow.
  • Giving plants better access to water and nutrients.
  • Recycling organic matter into plant food

The more worms you have in your garden, the healthier your plants will be! Learning about worms is also a wonderful way to get kids interested in gardening and growing some of their own food, like cherry tomatoes, strawberries and carrots. Kids can study worms up close in a mini worm farm science experiment that’s easy to make, using materials you’ll find around your home and garden.
