Home Grown: The Benefits of Earthworms


1. The constant tunneling of earthworms allows the free passage of air into and out of the soil.  

2. Worms' burrowing also breaks up the hard pan and plow sole created by mechanical tillage.

3. By eating organic materials such as manure, leaves, grass and decaying wood, earthworms break them up at a much faster rate than would otherwise occur.
