The Beneficials!
Heroes of the Soil
(2024 Project)

Introducing...The Beneficials! Another Worm Farming Revealed learning product.

This story is entertainingly educational for EVERYONE!

We're Getting Closer to HOLLYWOOD!

I'm excited to announce this story is now a screenplay. I've added way more detail to the plot (from it's original book format) and it certainly reads like a Pixar movie. The feedback has been very positive. 5 AWARDS!

It's received several other nominations, beta readers, and reviews from professional analysts. I'm green-lighting this project to a new phase.

I'll slowly be working on The Beneficials as a video book, just like you see in the 1 min. trailer. You'll see many illustrations and hear music matched perfectly to the storyline.

This will not be cheap, and as always, Donations to the project are always welcomed. I will keep you updated and your name will be mentioned in the credits. I'll even show you (in real-time) how your donation was applied.

The story contains 20+ lively characters, serious AND hilarious. They all have their unique voices and accents. Best of all, the script has you guessing what will happen next, along with understanding and caring about the environment, the food you eat, and your health.

The story is extremely unique with heroes never seen before. It's a message that will enlighten and entertainment the general audience.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Boys and Girls,

The Beneficials is currently in InkTip Magazine and entered into several festivals.

Bigger, Stronger, and Super-Charged!!! 

We live in a world of processed foods. Even though we're currently experiencing a rise in natural home-grown produce, manufactured foods, which are filled with chemical fertilizers (poison), are also increasing.

Many have already discovered how to create the best soil to grow food. I've written those books for adults too. 

However, our future lies in the next generation (Gen-Z or iGen) to carry the torch of truth. I WHOLLY believe this generation will be the generation of TRUTH seekers.

Amidst mounds of fake news, misinformation, and politically-motivated products/agendas, the task will be monumental for our children and grandchildren. Sometimes the TRUTH can emerge and stare them straight in the face without them ever knowing.

This story will do JUST THAT! 

While they're watching this fascinating story about how the soil works, it'll be planting seeds of truth they'll grow to appreciate, and hopefully one day, practice or be sympathetic to.

Are you an organic grower, composter, food recycler, or serve organic and natural food...? Then you're a Hero! But what makes these plants make YOU look so awesome? It's the soil heroes that make the plants so amazing, The Beneficials!

Finally! There's a story behind what makes our gardens and food much like medicine. It's a story about the forgotten heroes hard at work within the soil food web. It's a story that will show people what YOU DO is for the benefit of your customers, your family, & the WORLD!

It is...
The Greatest Story In Earth!

The Beneficials, A Real World

I want to show everyone something different!

I want to show people a REAL world, a world of ordinary beings with extraordinary abilities. I want to show ordinary people how plants need a hero too, and when our food becomes extraordinary, so do we.

Meet Hermi!

Environmental Films-The Beneficials Heroes of the Soil

The Synopsis:

Hermi (our main character) lives in a beautiful forest. He’s just a young worm with big ambitions of being like his parents who’ve made plants extraordinary. 

It's his "mission".

So, he sets out one day to do just that, while befriending a few beneficial microbes along the way. 

During his adventure in the forest, a HUGE storm washes him into an unfamiliar place, a place everyone warned him to stay away from, THE CORN FIELD! 

After the storm, he finds himself lost and in a desolate land containing almost no life within the soil. He’s accosted by HUGE scary corn stalks. 

He notices something bizarre about the corn and the strange land he's in. "This isn't anything like the forest." 

He whispered to himself. "There's something wrong with this place."

Suddenly, he discovers his mission is much bigger than himself.

Environmental Films

Hermi desperately needs to get back home, find his forest friends (Proto, Nema, Gus, and Bob), to help save the maze community from dangerous pests and chemicals. 

While trying to accomplish this dangerous mission, a new kind of superhero is born...


True Environmental Heroes of Nature

Without them, we wouldn't be able to grow anything.

My goal in this story is to teach kids and adults about real-life beneficial heroes of the soil like,

  • Protozoa (Proto)
  • Bacteria (Bob)
  • Fungi (Gus)
  • Nematodes (Nema) 
  • Worms (Hermi)

in a way I've never done before. It might actually be the very first message of it's kind.

Each real-life organism has a purpose and place within the soil-food-web benefiting plants, and now, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO LEARN this without even knowing they're being educated! 

Kids, young adults, teachers, and those interested in nature of all walks of life, will be wildly entertained for 2 Hours in the video book and through other media methods.

My name is Pauly. I've been worm farming, composting, and gardening for several years and have created several publishings (including a successful KickStarter) that educates everyone from kids to adults. I teach them how to create the best soil amendment a plant could ever need to grow healthy, with big fruit. No need for chemical fertilizers ANYMORE!

Let us all TeachInspire, and Empower one another!
