Have you ever dug into the soil and found a worm?
Finding a worm in the dirt is a great sign. Worms eat the dirt and break down organic matter within the soil.
Worm castings are then released and add nutrients back into the ground. Plants then use these nutrients to grow.
Books are wonderful resources to use when learning about topics in nature and science.

There is so much nature to explore even within a small space. Worms like to live where it is dark and damp.
