This Root Garden, which can also be a Worm Farm, is a must have on a natural or any other playground.

The 24” wide x ~16” tall, double-sided viewing window offers a full scale view of what happens above and below ground when plants are growing!

Further, if you put a few worms in this vertical garden, you’ll soon see worm tunnels, casings, and worms at work making better soil right in front of your eyes!

When worms tunnel through the soil, they help plant roots get better access to water and air, and the “waste” the worms leave behind as they burrow through the soil, is nutrient-rich, which further helps the plants grow and be healthier.

So all-in-all? This simple element is full of fabulous learning opportunities, and helps kids develop a better understanding of the natural world.

We can also narrow the space between the panes to create an excellent ant farm.

We can make them so they rest on the ground (see the front one in the
photo), or be raised up off the ground (see the middle one in the photo).

Specify which one in the pull down menu!

Stands 30” tall x 30” wide. Legs go into the ground another 30”
