Healthy soil is the foundation for healthy plants that are resistant to disease and pests as well as nutritious for people to eat. A healthy soil structure also helps protect against erosion and the temperature extremes many places are facing from climate change.
But many common agricultural practices cause harm to soil, making it less fertile and more prone to erosion and degradation over time. Many soils are now in a state of poor health after years of chemical use and other damaging practices.
The good news is, this damage can be reversed! With some care and attention, and interventions which support the natural life in soils, good structure and fertility can be restored. This free, 90-minute presentation will explain the basic science of how healthy soil is formed by living things, and will share actions you can take to help restore damaged soils back to health.
Learn how you can improve the health of your soil by working with the life in the soil rather than against it!
