This masterclass will explore how key the creatures in the soil are to the health, resilience and yield of your plants. You will learn who the creatures are and the roles they play and then we’ll go through a series of practical steps you can take to best support them. These steps will include:

  • ways to inoculate your plants with mycorrhizal fungi and bacteria
  • making and applying aerated compost tea
  • how to create bacterial or fungal-based compost
