The Universe Beneath Our Feet

Here is a pod cast that talks about the life in the soil.  There are millions of living things in the soil that are working to help the plants we see above the ground grow.  We can not live without the fungi, bacteria, etc. in the soil.  There is a food web in the soil that consists of the fungi, bacteria, and the roots of plants all working together to feed each other.

 

 

Landrace seeds that are grown in an area for years have become adapted to the fungi and bacteria in the soil and have “learned” to grow well with them.
