The Soil Food Web

Today's guest, in an interview recorded by co-host David Bilbrey, is the microbiologist and soil researcher Dr. Elaine Ingham. In this episode they look at:

  • The microbiology of soil
  • The impact of this life on the health of our plants and agricultural system
  • How we can be citizen scientists
  • The power of a microscope to bring all these ideas together, right in front of our eyes.

All wrapped in a framework so we can understand the importance of healthy, living soil for human well-being, as individuals, participants in a community, and citizens of the world.
