Earthworms in Australia
A Blueprint for a Better Environment
David Murphy 1993 (AUS)
With over 30,000 copies in print, this is Australia's most popular guide to worm farming by far. Convert your household compost heap into a constant supply of nutrient-rich vermicast for your garden, and minimise the need for manufactured fertilisers and digging. Drawing on information from the world's leading agricultural research centres (including the CSIRO), this is a comprehensive and easily understood guide suitable for gardeners, farmers, conservationist, schools and businesses. Green Harvest utilizes the power of worms to digest all paper towels and kitchen scrapes including coffee grounds, as well as "waste" from plant propagation. This is an easy, non-technical way of returning traditional waste/rubbish into liquid fertilizer and worm castings for the garden. 112pp

Why feed your soil? Well, if you take stuff out, you need to put stuff back in.

There are fertiliser profiles and how to prepare the soil for particular crops as well as ways to tackle challenging plots of land. A must for every organic gardener, as it de-mystifies green manures, compost, mulching, and organic fertilisers as well as providing many strategies for restoring health to the soil. 184pp
