The action of earthworms on the vitality of soil and plants

Earthworms perform a physical and organic action in the soil.

What are earthworms for? Why are they so important that they were already mentioned a hundred years ago during the first biodynamic agriculture course?

Earthworms perform a physical and organic action in the soil. They dig tunnels which are used by the roots of plants. In the tunnels, water and nutrients accumulate. Earthworms release manure rich in very important microorganisms for the soil and precious soluble mineral salts. Pages would not be enough to list the useful effects of the presence of earthworms in the soil.

Rassecale, the story

At Rassecale (Mirabella Eclano, AV) we were welcomed by a young community, now undergoing renovation but still with many projects to come: Marco and Pauline are running their wonderful vegetable garden, Marina has moved from Spain to help with the animals. Arrived here as a WWOOFer, her story is a testimonial of how impactful our association can be on agricultural practice and people’s life.
