This is a paper back, "real book" (Not an e-book)
The price ($39) is in US dollars and includes international postage.
Come with David Murphy while he takes you through the influence worms had on human migration in times long past, how worms can make or break civilizations, how smart farmers like David Davidson who uses worms to double the carrying capacity of his land, or Bert Farquahar who could write out a cheque for $10,000,000 to buy another farm because of the canny way he used worms.
See how David Murphy is able to take what the worms produce – on its own, a super plant booster – and quadruple it’s plant growth value by very simple means and how to blend it with rock dust to make the complete low impact but effective biological fertiliser for a few dollars only per tonne.
Find out why worms ain’t worms, but then add David Murphy’s extraordinary knowledge and you have the key to super prosperity by a sustainable means.
A Few Words From The Author, David Murphy
We live in a crucially important time. We are told to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gas, yet the demand for coal-based energy increases at light speed. We can change light bulbs to LED, install solar panels on our houses – we can strive to do our bit – but at the same time China commissions a new coal-fired power station almost weekly.
Our individual efforts just go out the window. For every wind farm we build there has to be a backup (coal, diesel or gas) generating capacity to step in instantly the wind stops – as it does, often. Nobody mentions the biggest emitter of CO2 – the soil of the earth. From there, more CO2 than every other source combined ! Mark that ! Every other source combined ! Reverse soil emissions and the problem is better than solved ! Professor Alessandro Piccolo (Università Frederico !!, Naples) stated (in personal conversation) that if we raised the organic matter in soil from less than the current 1% world average (it used to be minimum 20%) to 5% to plough depth, 150 billion tonnes of CO2 would be locked into the soil.
Comments By Brian Donaldson:
I met David when he joined the Worm Farming Alliance (An International organization of serious and or commercial worm growers)
I read this book almost immediately, on the recommendation of my fellow administrator, Larry J Shier.
I found the book to be full of interesting and thought provoking information.
Since then, I have had a fair amount to do with David.
I find him extremely knowledgeable on the subjects of commercial composting and commercial vermiculture.
If I live to be 100, I would be satisfied to know half of what David knows.
I personally recommend this book, for anyone interested in domestic OR commercial composting, or vermicomposting.
What Others Say About The Book
There have been a lot of books written about worms, but, ORGANIC GROWING WITH WORMS is the best without question!! There is just so much valuable info in it. I use it all the time on the family farm and in the garden at home. I wouldn’t be without it. Its a great and easy read - Peter Cundall was right when he said '… this book is amazing and inspiring’. My new bible, thank you !"

Greetings David and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family ! This is my second copy of your wonderful book. I loaned my original to a friend who has taken off with it, lol. As it is my bible on all things worms I decided, just in case it never returns, to treat myself to a spare. Thank you for the effort and work to get such a marvelous book out to the public. Kindest regards
"From my very early days in Vermiculture, David Murphy's book has been my "bible". Not only for the scope of information, but also the readability. I have read many books and articles on worms since, but it is still head and shoulders above the others. The sub-title says it all...A handbook for a better environment.

“Over many year's David'Murphy's book has been a best seller in our store. It is a great resource and we believe it should be on every grower's bookshelf. We are thrilled with his revised edition ! It is proving even more invaluable for home gardeners and large scale farmers alike”.
Farming Secrets (Hugo & Helen Disler)
I have been in regular contact with David Murphy since 2006. Our inexperienced group approached him then to help us learn more about vermiculture, as we had been immensely impressed with his book Earthworms in Australia. He has since written a much more extensive book, Organic Growing with Worms, which is widely used by many of our 2000 members.

“Thanks David ! This is my second copy of your fabulous book. I lent my first copy to a “friend” and he never returned it. Eventually I had to get another one. I need that book within easy reach! Thanks for writing it.”
