Soil Biology Testing Class
Saturday, December 1, from 11:00am til 4:00pm
The Sierra Soil Biology Association promotes knowledge and development of the soil foodweb — that complete spectrum of microscopic life that cycles nutrients through soil as nature intended.
Why develop a healthy foodweb in your soil?
– Maximize plant quality and production, with no synthetic inputs.
– Eradicate diseases and pests — without pesticides, of any kind.
– Liberate plants to express themselves, fully and consistently.
These goals are possible because in biologically rich soil, plants can feed themselves — and thereby fulfill their potential for health and vitality. Through a vast mosaic of complex relationships and communities, microbes and plants nourish one another in ways we have only begun to understand.
However, thanks to a growing number of farmers and biologists — foremost among them the esteemed Dr. Elaine Ingham — the big picture is clear: healthy soil requires a particular range and diversity of microbial life. Our job is to nurture it by the most efficient means possible.
SSBA is here to help.
