Got Questions About the Urban Worm Bag?
The new version of the Urban Worm Bag features an interior enclosure, cinched shut by a drawstring, which protects the zipper against grit and calcifications
A breathable fabric bag suspended from a sturdy, but lightweight iron frame, employing the simple but effective continuous flow through concept. New features added in September 2018 are now standard on the Urban Worm Bag.
From the nylon zippers to the iron frame to the 900D Oxford fabric with a polyurethane coating, the Urban Worm Bag is built to last. It also comes with a lifetime warranty. If the materials or workmanship fail, I will replace what is needed!
Perfect for DIYers who want to build their own frame! Buy the Urban Worm Bag without the frame for $30 less than the full unit. Recommended if you’re going to assemble the Urban Worm Bag on an uneven surface.

In Part I of this interview about soil biology with Heather Rinaldi and Nina Folch, we learned some pretty crucial stuff about what constitutes excellent soil, how to recognize when it's good, and what to do about it when it's not. But the one thing we didn't even...
I kind of always thought of soil as just "dirt", the stuff under the grass, the brown substance plants just magically grow out of. And it wasn’t until embarrassingly recently that I learned of the level of complexity that ecosystem that exists, or at least should...
