Worms are incredible earth movers. The organic matter they deposit within their tunnels helps to break down rocks and minerals from deep in the subsoils and bring them to the surface as living soil. Additionally they provide aeration for the penetration of oxygen into the earth, and also the ability for soil to absorb water from the rain into the ground rather than rapid run off, which causes soil erosion.

So by mining minerals with plants, such as vetiver grass, we allow the subsoil worms on the surface and provide mineral rich green material for food to build NEW EARTH.

Maui New Earth has acquired a boat! But not without an adequate adventure to accompany it. We traveled from Maui to Oahu by plane, and then Oahu (to Molokai) to Maui by boat.

Join us on our adventures and see parts of the backside of Molokai that no more than a few handfuls of people have ever laid eyes on!

Nature, if left to itself, is the closest thing I know to perfect. It’s us who tends to interrupt cycles of perfection in our belief that we can somehow possibly make it better or improve upon something that’s already perfect. I fail to see how we consider ourselves humble when compared to the epicness of all that is without a thought. All things exist in perfect harmony – Mother Nature, space, light, time, liquid...

We introduced Maui New Earth's philosophy and background on the blog. Make sure to join in on the conversation!

It is interesting to observe the contrasts between children and adults in their reaction to worms. Adults shy away in disgust while children lean towards in intrigue.

We have been so programmed in our culture to fear dirt and bacteria and bugs, when there is so much knowledge and healing in these things. We have the power to heal the earth, and ourselves, through collaborate with the bugs and microbes.

At Maui New Earth, we treat our worms as the MVP's that they are - the ultimate earth maker. By planting and spreading the food they like to eat and never tilling the soil (or even taking a shovel to the dirt after a garden is made) we always prioritize the lives of our worm friends.

Challenge yourself by going outside, sticking your hands in the soil, and seeing what sort of earth-makers you find. Whether it's a worm or beetle or slug, they all play a role in the interconnected network of life. If you have a kid, ask them if they will show you where the worms hang out.

We had a successful prawning excursion on the night of the new moon! A bucket-load of prawns definitely gives us confidence for our eat-only-from-Maui challenge.
