Dr. Elaine Ingham presents her soil science for beginners masterclass. She covers what the soil food web is, how plants benefit from a healthy soil food web, and how you can change the food web in the soil for your benefit.

Understanding the nature of our living soil is the key and Dr Ingram really brings this subject to life. It is revealing to be reminded that the ground breaking study of 1986 that offered a much deeper unerstanding of the inter-relationships of soil organisms.

Life, compost, part three of this lecture. In this section she makes us much more aware of the behaviours and interactions between different the different soil organisms. Compost teas, biology of extracts and using microbes for fixing problems.

Part 4: Looking at the data, test results from compost tea applications. Multiplying the soil biology as a strategy.

As we marry permaculture and soil biology undestanding togther, this is a dynamic duo that we can really do a great job of converting everyone on the planet!

When the right microbial balance is in the soil plants don’t suffer from pest diseases and weed competition. Dr Ingram brings these ideas alive in this short video charting the main course of her research.
