wiggly wigglers
I have just come across this website: https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk

Yes, it's a good site and I will add it to the links page. Their wormeries are very sophisticated "urban" ones, their main focus seems to be bringing the country to the poor souls who live in cities - a very nice thing to do!

Further to the zen link below....
...here is further on-the-ground evidence of the need for holistic composting. A recent study found allotment soil to be much richer than intensively farmed soil. There's an article in the little i paper on 17 July 2018 headed "A dirt poor world" by Dr Malcolm Smith:

Pass this link on to an intensive farmer near you.

Thanks, Wendi, found it and listened! Very good simile, shall ponder it when I next turn the compost. Was so sorry at the end when he ran for the Eurostar....

Jelly Worms and chocolate soil
Had a brilliant day at the workshop with Chloe and Rosie yesterday. Please can you post a picture of the jelly worms? Thanks for the recipe on this site. They will be great for composting workshops and even trick or treat!

Thanks, Eve, it was a very nice group of people with a real interest in composting - and I am hoping that someone will send me some photographs. Although I had my camera, as so often, I forgot to use it. (And I admit the jelly worms concept started from a Halloween recipe in a cookery magazine...)

What fun - I'm sorry I missed it!

Thanks Fiona, see you at another one! And I have at last added a picture of edible worms to the WORMS page (where else..?)
