Image from my favorite vermicomposting site for children: Worms.com. A must see especially for parents and teachers!BBC World Service (radio) OnePlanet environment program topic this week is soil. The middle segment of the first episode covers earthworms, including a visit to the NHM Darwin Centre collection. It's available as a podcast for downloading.
From the Ground Up: Part 1
The first of a two part series in which soil scientists, biologists and enthusiasts tell the story of soil. How was this invaluable thin layer around the planet formed and how does it differ in around the world?
From the Ground Up: Part 2
This part is about soil degradation issues & land management to combat it.
You can download the podcast from the the OnePlanet website (first link) or directly download the mp3 files of each episode (13MB each, second and third links). Each episode is 26 minutes long.
