HARVESTING WORM CASTINGS TO FERTILIZE MY ORGANIC GARDEN MAY 2011

www.goingorganic.weebly.com I wanted to show you a quick video on harvesting worm castings from my worm bin that I buried in the old greenhouse.

Worm castings have many organic natural benefits for the soil: 1) Improves soil structure; 2) enriches
