Customer Reviews

Too general for me

I was excited to get this book and read about the worms I got for my worm bin. But it is a general book about all different types of worms, with only a little blurb about the eisena foetida. It looks helpful for building a worm bin -- there are plenty of plans and instructions -- but I didn't get the book for that.
