Earthworms

19th October @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Ever wondered what the earthworms in your field and compost are actually doing? Or if they can tell us anything about the soil they inhabit? Time to find out – join us for one or both days if you can…

Earthworms Day One: Wednesday 19th

you will learn about earthworm ecology, the impact of farm activities, and how earthworms are linked to the food system. You will learn how to identify earthworms and recognise the traces they leave behind in the field. Then we will head out into the fields to explore earthworm populations on Lauriston Farm.

Earthworms Day Two: Thursday 20th

You will get involved with measuring earthworm abundance and identifying different species around Lauriston Farm. We will start the day with a recap. Then we will split up into groups to measure populations in different areas to understand the role of farming and land use practices on earthworm populations. The data collected on this day will contribute to national earthworm databases.
