Join Professor Peter Hobbs of Cornell University for an exploration of the hardest workers in your garden--the soil microbiota. Explore the fascinating world of the soil bacteria and fungi that do the work of creating fertile soil. A better understanding of the life in the soil help us to understand how to facilitate the growth and resilience of our gardens and orchards. We’ll talk about practical techniques for facilitating a healthy microflora in your garden for maximum garden sustainability and productivity.
