The Worm Farm Hoedown Underground kit allows budding oligochaetologists to uncover the importance of worms in our ecosystem by observing them as they go about their daily routines. By growing gardens for your pet worms to play in, you will be able to witness how they help plants grow. When worms tunnel through dirt, they increase the amount of air and water that can get into the soil. Similarly, worm poo makes great plant food! With this kit, you’ll be able to see the Earth’s best gardeners in action. The Worm Farm Hoedown can also be combined with Ant Jungle Colony to create an even bigger ecosystem for your underground critters.

What’s included in the box:

  • Worm farm mouldings (front, back, sides, flag, lid, base)
  • Themed scenery stickers
  • Worm privacy sliders
  • Pipette and tweezers
  • 2 x Bags of coloured sand
  • 2 x Plugs
  • Instructional booklet

Please note that worms are not included in the kit. This kit is suitable for scientists over the age of six, however, children under the age of eight are recommended to have adult help in constructing the kit. Not suitable for children aged three years and under.

Packaging dimensions: 320 x 195 x 80mm

Worm Farm Hoedown Underground also makes a great classroom teaching resource. This product can be used in classroom activities that align with the Australian Curriculum.
