The Microbiome of the Garden looks at the garden from the microbial point of view. Learn about the evolutionary history of soil, the plant/microbe relationship, the cooperative relationship between the microbiome of soil and the microbiome of plants, and what that implies in terms of plant and, subsequently, human health. This talk compares the microbiomes of plants and people, gardens and families, and in the process demonstrates that life itself is a vast conspiracies of microbes.
