Urban Landscape Organics

Action Now members, Annie and Bob, are contemplating the importance of earthworms in their backyard garden. Their contribution cannot be overemphasized in the sustainablility of our organic urban landcape environments. The tireless little workers are currently feeding on autumn deadfall and rotting grapefriuts in the compost heap! The current rain cycle combined with this seasonal diet allow them to thrive and produce the best fertilizer!

Healthy soil with plenty of earthworm castings promotes healthy plants that fight off harmful pests: no pesticides needed!
