For most of civilization - until the last 100 years or so - farmer and plant breeder were the same thing. If we are to ensure true food security and fortify a resilient agriculture, we must do it from the ground up. That means restoring the farmer's role as participant in our co-evolution with food and medicinal plants, rather than mere recipient. It is no longer appropriate to simply outsource this responsibility to 'the experts'; we must work together to tackle climate disruption and its implications for our foodshed

You’ve heard of compost, but what about humic acids, hyphae, and boron? We are going to "dig" deeper and explore: the unique benefit of compost over chemical/mineralized fertilizers, how it introduces biology (making nutrients more available), and promotes the symbiotic relationship of microbes and root systems. Compost lab results will be reviewed to show what nutrients are provided beyond organic matter, and how this translates into lb/acre (& oz/sqft) recommendations.
