Initiatives – Soil Inoculation

Our last posting talked about not using synthetic fertilizer. Actually, we allow the plants to fertilize themselves through fungal soil inoculation. Making no sense? The fungi live symbiotically with the plant roots and access Nitrogen from the surrounding soil in exchange for some plant carbs. This process creates plants more resilient to climate change through the use of mycorrhizal communities underground.

You see – Nature always knows best!
