    The way worms act in the soil is similar to super aerators that consume earth and organic debris and leave a mix of soil and plant food throughout the soil profile... nothing absolute,,, but that is a general picture of what to expect from a good worm population...
    I've read about nightcrawlers that they will actually gather storehouses of debris from the surface and store it as much as 18" deep... talk about curing drainage issues... :)

    Aristotle called earthworms "The intestines of the soil".
