Soil food web microscope for soil biology.
Soil food web course. Elaine ingham and land and leadership founder, didi. In this course you will learn about the soil food web and it's role in healthy soils. Greenfriends farm utilizes soil food web (sfw) techniques to create the best soil possible for fruit trees.
Lessons are from the recording of the 2 day workshop presented by dr elaine ingham. We can rebuild fertility in the soil in one growing season, but we have to work with nature, and its processes. Examples of what doesn’t work and why.
Good biology in our soils will protect our crops and orchards from disease protection, increase the amount of nutrients that are retained in the soil, make those nutrients available for your plant, decompose toxins, build soil structure to reduce compaction, improve and expand root health and development, and increase the amount of water your soil holds and thus decrease the amount of water we need to use for irrigation. How to make good compost and compost teas and correct applications. In this course you'll learn why growing organically is so important.
A key benefit of using the sfi methodology is the reduction of artificial chemical inputs and an increase in soil biology. The systems developed by dr ingham have been designed to analyse the microbiology present in soil samples. She offers a way of improving your soils and a way of keeping your soils in a healthier state without damaging the ecosystem.
How can microorganism and the microbiome be utilised to increase plant resilience and sustainability throughout. This is an invitation for you to participate in this course with dr elaine ingham. The complete soil food web can be found in virgin soils around the world.
Compost tea and soil food web intensive course greenfriends farm is a project at m. This is the real value of learning about the soil food web. By utilising our services you will learn how you can manage and maintain a balanced and healthy soil.
Elaine ingham, hosted by didi pershouse. We are using sfw techniques to transform our hard clay soil that is bacterial dominant into a fungal dominant soil that is suitable for fruit trees. A healthy food web ensures that nutrient cycling speeds along giving the plants.
The soil food web is the community of organisms living all or part of their lives in the soil. You have lifetime access to the course, once they are made available online they remain. There are composting methods that allow us to attract the correct balance of microorganisms, that is right for the kind of crops we want to grow.
In this course you will learn how to do a soils test and why it is so important to our gardens and landscapes. Soil food web course with dr elaine ingham. Elaine ingham and land and leadership founder, didi pershouse , we discussed the soil food web and explored all the roles and functions that soil organisms perform in a landscape.
The course begins as soon as you register. Food chains, food webs & the soil a food chain is a linear representation of the feeding interactions between organisms of a particular area, which flows in only one direction. The soil foodweb institute have been soil rehabilitation specialists since 1986.

Soil foodweb is an international soil biology group providing laboratory soil testing and soil biology consultancy services. Examples of what has worked; The soil food web course is online!
Elaine’s™ soil food web approach is the key to rapid and effective soil regeneration. How to bring back a balanced soil biology; You will access the webinar via this course's curriculum.
Elaine’s™ soil food web approach provides an effective and viable means of rapidly regenerating health and fertility in agricultural soils, enabling farmers to operate more productively and profitability without the use of chemical inputs, thus protecting the world’s waterways, insect and animal populations.
