Soil surface is key - Take 2! Over the last year we have had the opportunity to study with one of Dr Elaine Ingham's students who has been leading workshops on the microbiology of growing in our local area. Elaine Ingham's approach builds on over 4+ decades of research and practical application of the soil foodweb. To date she has helped thousands of clients reclaim their land, livelihoods and soil fertility without chemicals or fertilizers. By repairing the soil foodweb, a farmer's yields, soil health, and plant quality can be far improved over chemical applications. What Elaine and her students are showing is that the soil foodweb approach to agriculture can be a true biological paradigm to replace our failing agriculture system.
