Soil Microorganisms

Have you ever wondered how healthy your soil is?  Does it have the correct ratio and diversity of microorganisms for the plants you are growing?   Understanding the answers to these questions will increase plant yield, build soil structure, suppress disease, retain and recycle nutrients, decompose toxins, and reduce water usage. You are invited to learn about the foundation of the soil food web in this presentation.

Carol Christensen:  MS (Adult Continuing Education), BA (Physical Geography), University of WI-Madison; Soil Life Student with Elaine Ingham, PhD; Permaculture Design Certificate; WI Master Naturalist
