Yes, that is not an earthworm. That is a curl grub which you definitely don’t want to encourage.

Enriching your soil cheaply can be as easy as asking local grass cutters to spread their cuttings on your lawn area and letting it compost into the soil. My lawn / future garden area is looking very green and healthy now with very few weeds. If you have nettles growing see it for what it is a sign of great soil. A win win win since your soil is enriched, the cutter saves dumping fees and the grass is not creating methane in the dump.
