Like the atmosphere, the present surface of the earth is also a part of the creation of life. Everywhere, under natural conditions, the topsoil is alive with insects, grubs, earthworms, etc, transforming it chemically and physically. This is true whether the soil supports forests, prairies, tundra, grasslands, farmlands, gardens or parks.
Organic gardeners have legitimate scientific reasons to claim that earthworms contribute as much as fertilizers to the fertility of the soil. In fact, microbial forms of life which is invisible to the naked eye are at least as important as earthworms and insects.
Every speck of humus contains billions of living germs, belonging to countless different varieties, each specialized in the decomposition and transformation of one or another type of organic debris derived from animals, plants, or other types of microbes.
