S4 E06 Healthy Soil

‘Don’t treat your soil like dirt’ is a motto today’s guest Dr Jess Drake lives by. Jess is a soil scientist with Murrang Earth Sciences and science educator through her blog.

In this episode Jess tells us how soil plays a vital part in healthy ecosystems, carbon sequestration and life itself. We discuss the peculiarities of Australian soils and what we can do in our own back yards to increase the health of our soils.
