Gardening For Earthworms

LNHS logo

This free talk is part of the London Natural History Society Virtual Natural History Talk series

Earthworms are vital for maintaining healthy soils and provide a host of other benefits to garden habitats. However, few people realise we have 29 different species of earthworm in the UK, with differing requirements and providing different benefits.

Keiron Derek Brown will provide tips and guidance on how you can improve the earthworm diversity and abundance within your garden, regardless of if you have a small urban garden or extensive grounds. This talk is being presented one week before World Earthworm Day.
