Beneficial Microbial Allies Beneath Our Feet & In Our Bodies
We've been hearing for years how important diet and certain foods are for our physical and mental health and overall well-being.  And now, new science is helping us understand some of the fundamental mechanisms at play, not only in our bodies, but also in food crops.  The soil and gut microbiomes, nutrition, and farming practices are among the topics a geologist, a nutritionist, and a biologist will cover during a presentation and discussion.
