Crazy Worms Found in Wisconsin
Please be on the look out for Amynthas Agrestis (crazy worms) because they could devastate our forest land as well any organic material found in its path. Please only use compost/soils that are tested and ask your local supplier of plants if they are aware of the problem and what they are doing about it prior to transplanting plants.

Weed Control Options - Finding your balance betw...
Weed control options
By far the most asked question is “how do you control weed growth?” The organic answer is to create an equal balance of structural, chemical, and biological activity in the soil; without biological activity unhealthy soils and weeds are sure to exist.
