About this book

Earthworms were described by Darwin as the most important species on our planet and by Aristotle as 'the intestines of the earth'. This book provides all the information needed on these remarkable creatures and how important they are to the functioning of all life on Earth.

In addition to this, it contains simple and easy-to-implement tips on many of the important environmental issues currently faced, including how earthworms benefit the environment, the garden and the economy, the role earthworms play in reducing carbon emissions and removing heavy metals and toxins from the soil and how to set up an earthworm farm or compost heap.
