Stone Barnes Announcement Below:
Join for this workshop focused on the role bacteria and fungi play in our soil food web! Field Foreman, Max Apton, will share his expertise on how best to work with these organisms to maximize your growing potential. The workshop will address the vital role bacteria and fungi play in healthy crop production (with a focus on perennial fruits and annual vegetables), and participants will leave with a basic understanding of which crops prefer soil dominated by fungus as opposed to bacteria and how to assist in fostering these desirable microbe communities. We'll also cover methods and conditions under which you can culture active biological inoculants and how best to apply these materials.
