SKU AQ Bk Team Microbes
Healthy soil is teeming with life; not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. These are also found in a healthy aquaponic media bed and need to be cared for. When we use harsh chemicals in our systems, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy plants and keeps the nutrient cycle functioning. But we can garden in a way that strengthens the soil/media food-web, the complex world of organisms whose interactions create a nurturing environment for plants. "Teaming with Microbes" extols the benefits of cultivating this intricate microscopic food-web.
