SOIL FOOD WEB COURSE AND
MICROSCOPE INTENSIVE COURSE

BUNDLE DISCOUNT

This is an Invitation for YOU to participate in this course with Dr Elaine Ingham.

Throughout the course you will be introduced to:

  • The healthy Soil Foodweb
  • How to bring back a balanced soil biology
  • Examples of what has worked
  • Examples of what doesn’t work and why.
  • How to make good compost and compost teas and correct applications.
  • Some stunning examples of what happens quickly when you get it right!

Once you understand that to gain healthy soils for your plants and animals, you need to know the biology present in your soil, compost, compost tea or extract and the best way to know what biology is present is by getting a sample and look at it under the microscope.

In the course, you will learn:

  • Technique in preparing your sample
  • Best practices in using and operating the microscope
  • Identifying good and bad diversity of bacteria, fungi and protozoa
  • Identifying different feeding groups of nematodes
  • Identifying other organisms and non-organisms
  • How to count and the equation in assessing if you have the balance of biology for your plants

Soil Food Web Course Outline

Lesson 1: Soil Foodweb Intro

In this lesson, we start with a bit of Dr Elaine Ingham’s background and how she began teaching. Then we look at how to take a soil sample to send off to a laboratory. We then take a closer look at what goes on in a thermal compost pile, the different habitats that form and the importance of the different roles the microorganisms play.

Lesson 2: Plant Comparisons

In this lesson, we get a closer look at biological v. conventional approach to soil management. Nutrient cycling. Understanding the balance of soil biology for the plant you are trying to grow. What are the disturbances to the ecosystem? A series of results from applying compost and compost teas.

Lesson 3: Soil Horizons

We get a closer look about the soil: soil depth, how far roots can go, soil horizons, importance of Calcium in the soil, compaction and how do you fix it.

Lesson 4: Nutrient Cycling

In this lesson, we dive deep into nutrient cycling. Once we get the right biology in the soil it will be a snap. Hint: ALL the biology must be present, not just the "most important".

Lesson 5: Compost

In this lesson, we will talk all about compost! Types of compost, what should be present in the compost and how much compost to use.

Lesson 6: Compost Tea

In this lesson, we will talk all about compost & compost teas! Proper ratio, how to make compost, composting process, commercial compost, back-yard composting, house hold composting and compost tea!
