Featured Workshop Instructor: Elaine Ingham, Ph.D., founder, President and Director, Research for Soil Foodweb Inc.

Learn how to use microscopes to explore with Dr. Elaine Ingham some of the following questions:

  • What organisms are present in the soil and/or on the foliage of your plants?
  • Which organisms are beneficial and which ones are harmful to plants?

Behind Dr. Ingham’s user-friendly approach lies a wealth of knowledge gained from years of research into the organisms which make up the soil food web. Her goal is to translate this knowledge into actions that ensure a healthy food web that promotes healthy plant growth.

Using Microscopes to Explore the Soil Web of Life: A Hands-On Workshop for Educators is funded in part by the Holton family, Mabel Dorn Reeder Foundation, and US EPA Region 7 through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (subgrant number G14-NPS-04), under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act.
