2017 Soil Biology with James Loomis
Apr 08, 2017 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come dive into the wonderful world of microbes, the fundamental pioneers of life on this planet, and learn about the living web of microscopic organisms in the soil.
In this workshop, WCG's GREEN TEAM Farm Manager James Loomis will teach participants about how healthy soil functions, and its relationship to all of the other living components of Regenerative Agriculture Design. James will have his microscope on hand to show participants these soil organisms and their behavior under high-power magnification. Participants will also engage in a few hands on experiments, including demonstrating soil's ability to filter water.
