I just got signed up for Dr Elaine Ingham’s Soil Food Web On-Line course. soilfoodwebcourse.com maybe your asking Who and What … well those are good questions.
Dr Elaine Ingham is an American soil biology researcher and founder of Soil Foodweb Inc. She is known as a leader in soil microbiology and research of the soil food web. She is an author of the USDA's Soil Biology Primer. In 2011, Ingham was named as The Rodale Institute's chief scientist. So she has a really big brain about everything under our feet.
For me soils and compost have really been a mystery. Yea I took agronomy in college, I’ve read the books on the correct nitrogen to carbon ratio in the compost. I have even piled up cow poo and green and brown plant material and watch it turn into “compost”. I think to myself “how good or bad is this stuff?”, WELL Dr. Elaine can give you not only answers but she can show you how.
I saw her talk at the PV1 (Permaculture Voices Conference) in California this spring and what I saw, Well, “I Gotta Get Me More of This!” I looked to see when her next class was going to be on the East Coast and … Nothing. When I heard about the On-Line Course I was all over it.
