Spending time with Dr. Elaine Ingham at The Rodale Institute
Feb 25 – March 1
This is my second trip to Rodale in the past year. I am always interested in trying to improve what we do and what better way than to spend some time with the most influential person in the field of organic land care and organic agriculture. This trip I will be spending time being trained on evaluating biological activities in your soils.
