What can we glean from just a soil sample and the soil food web in it?
What questions does this pose, and can we judge from the soil alone which plants grew best?
Niels Corfield’s blog post this week, Wet on top, dry underneath, shares how poor soil health, in particular, poor soil structure due to lacking soil biology, leads to floods, drought and reduced yields. It resonates what I am learning right now in Regen Academy’s module on Why we have water-stressed crops with 30 inches ofContinue reading “Flood and drought. Two sides of the same coin”
Should I take Dr. Elaine’s™ Soil Food Web Foundation Courses?

In my quest to do this, I am keeping this blog as a diary and resource collection. AndContinue reading “Welcome!”
