Heaven Stanton, wearing the bandana, gets some help with the earthworm farm she is putting together at the Bartow Public Library during a Worm Charming event there. It was presented by the Polk County Extension Office and featured a slide show and children learning how people make a living with earthworms and how important they are to the soil.


Hannah Mathre plays with the dirt and the worms at the Worm Charming, Worm Farming and Earthworm Races event at the Bartow Public Library.


One of those attending the Worm Charming event at the Bartow Public Library takes a close look at the earthworms there during the Worm Chasing event there. Each student, of which there were about 15, got to make an earthworm farm in a plastic case to take home with them.
