Farm and Garden Forum: Beyond the Chemistry

Biology is the name of the most Amazing Show on Earth! And Tom Wade will entertain you as you learn about Soil Biology, the most useful of allies in creating a healthy and vibrant garden. The role of the microbes in our gardens and the role of the microbes in our bodies operate on parallel and complementary planes. Understanding both is key to both personal and planetary balance and health.

In this presentation you will learn biologically-based strategies to help you:

  • ·         Increase the quality and nutrient-density of the foods you grow.
  • ·         Enhance the pest resistance and shelf life of your home-grown produce.
  • ·         Increase yields.
  • ·         Enhance the drought tolerance and disease resistance of your garden plants.
  • All of this, while enhancing your own vitality and sanity!
