Feeding the Soil: Nature’s Health Plan for Your Garden (and You)
September 29 @ 2:45 pm – 4:00 pm
David Montgomery and Anne Biklé will draw from their latest book What Your Food Ate as well as their Dirt Trilogy (Dirt, The Hidden Half of Nature, Growing a Revolution) to present the connections between soil health and human health. They’ll share the history and science underpinning the new awareness of soil health in gardening and farming. The practices that best nourish and safeguard a plant’s root microbiome ripple through to the health and beauty of plants in gardens as well as the nutritional qualities and flavor of crops and animals in the human diet. It turns out that what’s good for the land is good for us too.
