LEARN ALL ABOUT LIFE IN THE SOIL
Our soil teams with a multitude of organisms which provide the necessary work for healthy plants to grow free from disease, pests, and infertility. These interconnected interactions and feeding relationships (quite literally “who eats who”) help determine the types of nutrients present in soil, its depth, and pH, and even the types of plants which can grow.
Registration is now open for the self-paced Life in the Soil Class and you can start immediately.

Healthy soil has all the interconnected elements like a web, retaining and cycling nutrients into the right forms at the right rates for each individual while building structure, suppressing disease-causing organisms, protecting plant surfaces, producing plant-growth-promoting hormones and chemicals, and decomposing toxic compounds. In this class you’ll look at the elements of what a healthy soil should look like.
- Understand Soil Health
- Learn Why Fungal To Bacterial Ratios Are Important
- Learn Secrets Fertilizer Salesmen Don’t Want People To Know
- Why Is Compaction So Bad?
- Why Are Roots of Plants Prevented From Growing Deep Into Soil?
You will learn the basic principles of the Life in the Soil, plant relationships, and bacteria to fungi ratios in these 18 class sessions. Not only will you gain a fundamental understanding of the way soil biology drives plant nutrition, you will learn how modern agriculture selects for disease and pests. The class is a must for anyone wanting a complete understanding of soil health and how to achieve and maintain healthy plants.
You will be able to access all video and recorded webinars for up to one year from the date you purchased the class. You will be able to view the approximately 45 minute video sessions at your convenience. There are no set times for the sessions. They are all self-paced.
There will be transcripts and slides for each video class session that you can download and view as you are taking your quizzes. In addition, the recorded webinars will be able for you to watch during this year.

You are welcome to download all of the other materials and keep them with you forever – video transcript, video slides, quizzes and feedback, and audio recordings.
There will be Certificates of Completion issued at the end of the class for all who receive an average quiz score of 70% of higher.
This class will be your guide, to teach you about what these organisms do in the soil, who the organisms are and, really, to help you understand the conditions that are going to select for the beneficial organisms in the soil or select for the detrimental organisms in the soil.
