A Soil Owner's Manual
How to Restore and Maintain Soil Health
"There are at least 2,000 pounds of soil microbes in each acre of healthy soil; the weight of 2 cows."
Here's the dirt on why I'm recommending this book about soil:
1) Soil is literally at the root of everything we are working with and it seems most schools I work with are always looking for a helpful reference on learning and teaching the importance of soil health.
2) I've yet to get a bad book recommendation from a great garden teacher ;)
So, when Ted Bridge-Koenigsberg at Sebago Elementary School kindly sent me a copy, I knew I had to share it forward. He favors it because after reading this easy explanation on soil health and enlisting some of the practices detailed in the book they are "beginning to see some real changes" in the quality of the soil in their raised bed garden. Thank you for sharing Ted!
Winter is a great time to catch up on reading. Have any resources to recommend? Let us know!
