Microbes and Minerals

Old Dairy

Forget high tech equipment, expensive fertilisers and specialist seed selection. On a back to basics approach Jennifer and Glyn are convinced we are missing a trick for our soil. Jennifer outlines her 15 years’ of adding UK’s own ancient MINERAL (full suite of 17) rich freshly crushed, finely screened volcanic rock dust to soil. Glyn compliments this by explaining what is achieved by culturing soil MICROBES in the right compost, extracting the beneficial ones and deploying them to protect crops from pests and disease while reducing cost. Simplest is best – as crop yield and health is increased, so is carbon sequestration. A talk not to be missed! Session hosted by REMIN and Credible Food Project.
