I have about 1/2 acre plot in semi-arid Colorado, at about 5,300 feet that I'm restoring. Today it is literally sand and silt with a few weeds, bordered by a road on one side and a concrete ditch wall on the other. Because of the cost of water, most of the neighbors yards are dirt, barely any shrubs and just a few trees. I turned over a lot of the dirt, there is no topsoil, and very little soil biology to be found except some ants and beetles. This county used to be one of the largest ag producing counties in the country, so i know the soil and climate have great promise.
I'm starting off by putting in a very large hugelkultur bed (about 65') but I don't know where to get earthworms locally.
Can I get them online, do I need to be concerned with the "regionality" of the worms, and can someone recommend a source?
