084 : You Don’t Need to Buy Worm Castings!

Episode 84

Worms castings provide many benefits to soil quality, and this is great for your garden. A quick stroll through any garden center will reveal that they can be bought as a soil amendment for a range of prices – and they are all too high because you don’t need to buy them! Have a listen as I discuss worm castings, why they are so good for your soil, and why there’s no point in buying them.
