Join us for a lively conversation on the essential role of microbes to both the health of the soil and human health. Learn about soil microbes from Bolinas farmer Dennis Dierks who has been harvesting and growing beneficial local microbes and treating the soil and the plants on his organic farm for over 20 years with amazing results. Dr. Ted Schettler, Science Director at the Environment Health Network, will bring us up to date on the role of microbes in our guts and how they affect our body’s health, our emotions, and our minds. Hear from Dr. Sadja Greenwood, a practitioner in the field, about supporting your gut biome and eating nutrient-dense foods that come from healthy soils. Moderated by healthcare ethicist, epidemiologist, and environmentalist, Steve Heilig.
