Earthworms to Improve Crops

Gives earthworms for 1 farmer
Gift Description:
Your donation provides earthworms to one farmer to greatly improve the yield and quality of fruits and vegetables. By shredding organic matter and breaking up hard soil, worms create subterranean paths that help aerate the soil, increase its water holding capacity, provide environments for beneficial bacteria to flourish, and provide a natural fertilizer. Good soil means good crops; good crops mean good prices; and good prices mean farmers can afford to feed their families.
