Who Benefits from Worm Farming
Worms have been a benefit to mankind and nature long before worm farming became well-known.
Worms provide food for other animals, help create and maintain healthy soil and plants, enhance gardening efforts, provide fish bait, and help teach our children about pets and other valuable lessons.
Worm farms are a part of natural science.
A nature museum or a zoo would benefit from a small worm farm as a display and to help feed the animals kept there, as well as keeping the scenery bright and fresh because of the benefits to the earth.
A petting zoo could make a worm farm part of their hands-on attraction.
You might start a worm farm as a science project with a class or with your own child.
It would also make a good FFA project. A small gardening club may want to invest in worm farming.

they provide a useful product, and they encourage equipment sales.
