April 7, 14, and 21st at noon. CT NOFA Healthy Soil Under the Microscope with Monique Bosch, a lunch time series
Join CT NOFA at noon on Wednesdays in April, as we zoom in on ‘Microbes Having Lunch’, under the microscope.
Week 1 (April 7): Learn about the diversity of organisms that make up the ‘soil food web’. From the tiniest one-celled bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa, to the more complex nematodes and micro-arthropods.
Week 2 (April 14): Learn how to keep microbes in your soil ‘alive and well’. In return, these soil organisms will provide nutrients for the plants, build organic matter, aggregate soil particles together, and help plants resist ‘stress’.
Week 3 (April 21): Learn how to make healthy, living compost, compost tea, and extractions, then how to use a microscope to identify the microbes, and quality.
