World Earthworm Day

The 21st October is world Earthworm Day. Get ready for a day to celebrate just how amazing earthworms are at turning waste into a valuable resource for gardening. We'll be re-launching our Earthworm Compost Survey as part of the celebrations and publishing articles on our website relating to composting. So spread the word and help us tell the world about why earthworms are such #SuperComposters this #WorldWormDay

Worms are the worlds unsung heroes. Throughout the world worm farming is revolutionising agriculture and organic waste management, helping us move towards regenerative practices that have the capacity to directly tackle climate change and repair degraded soil.

A new iRecord form has been developed by the Earthworm Society of Britain (ESB) to facilitate the recording of Soil Pit Survey data. This will enable the ESB to collect both earthworm species records and transect level data on abundance for soil pit surveying going forward.
