Charles Darwin was born 200 years ago this year. You've heard about his voyage to South America. But have you heard about his experiments with earthworms? They helped him show that every living thing has a purpose. Build a small worm farm for your backyard. Learn how to feed your worms and how to harvest the valuable compost they'll produce. Best thing: if you haven't enough time to care for your worms, release them in your garden: they will keep on working. Red Wigglers included. (The 'outhouse' is constructed from recycled timber.)
