About this book

Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life; not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms. This book examines the benefits of cultivating the soil food web by explaining the activities and organisms that make it up and offering tips on how gardeners can cultivate the life of the soil through the use of compost and mulches.
