About Earthworm Castings (Vermicast)
Put simply, earthworm castings refers to 100% pure and organic digested soil that African Night Crawler worms leave behind, which makes for nutrient-rich plant food that contains beneficial microbes that aid plant growth.
So why Vermicast and not other manures? Thanks to the mucus secretion from the worms, nitrogen is released slowly, making soil more absorbent, offering plants a more consistent supply of moisture, preventing soil from drying out. In addition, humic acid concentrations in earthworm castings promote plant nutrient absorption. Evidence also shows that Vermicast assists in the regeneration of soil, removing harmful heavy metals and toxins from the soil. In summary, worm castings represent the ultimate plant superfood.
Earthworks provides sustainable solutions to ensure a prosperous future for all.
