For those of you who are starting to dabble in the world of worms, welcome to the game. You probably have an inkling of an idea that there is actually something to this worm stuff, so this article should help with that gut feeling that you have.
There is a paradigm shift happening in the world of agriculture. What the ancients knew instinctively is now coming full circle and being validated by modern science. It’s a slow painful slog at times, but it is happening. We “moderns” created this mess, and it’s going to take some time to fix it. Modern farming techniques solved a lot of problems 50-60 years ago, but now the unintended consequences of those solutions have come home to roost, and a fresh look at what we’re doing is required. For a long time the vermiculturists have been preaching to the choir, but when you find an article like this in an essentially political publication you know that an awakening is occuring. Our thanks to our friend Heather Rinaldi at Texas Worm Ranch for posting this. It’s a great article and a harbinger of what is coming.
