  1. Worm treats! Laughing at myself! The resources on Rhonda’s site are brilliant, and there is information for schools.

  2. Great podcast, thanks Mark – lots of things for me to apply to my wormery, especially good to know about the worm liquid issue.

    I thought I would mention that the reason I was on the look out for a wormery is that I read Dave Goulson’s delightful book The Garden Jungle in which he dedicates a chapter on worms. I found it fascinating – hence when a wormery came up on Freecycle I jumped at the chance to have a go.

    Dave mentions in the book the recently founded organisation, The Earthworm Society of Britain (ESB) which is headed up by Emma Sherlock, earthworm specialist at the Natural History Museum London. It costs £5 to join and the form is here: https://www.earthwormsoc.org.uk/join
