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.
