Will, my chem education was in 1954, and was very basic. Non of the kids 
I went to School with went on to High school. The last 2 years of my 
schooling were spent one week in school, and one week working on the Farm
School. We still had Clydesdale horses for use in the orchard and for 
instructional purposes. We learnt blacksmithing, woodwork, and leatherwork
(saddlery), Animal husbandry, on pigs, sheep, cattle, poultry and horses.
At sixty I wonder how many other people interested in Permaculture never did
chemistry.

There is a multilevel Marketing approach to worms floating around Perth at
the moment. Worms at $15 per thousand.
Also worms will handle much more than just manure. Shredded cardboard paper 
etc.
We have a video in our PAWA library on how to create a large scale worm
operation for farms.
