About this Event

It’s The Soil That Counts Series

(includes both Foundation and Master Class Workshops)

Soil microbes are essential to healthy soil and healthy soil is essential to healthy plants – this is the International Year of Plant Health. Let us build your knowledge and skills to understand how microbes build soil, so you can reduce water requirements, provide plant nutrients, protect our environment and break down toxins with these naturally occurring little workers. These interactive workshops will get you much more closely acquainted with our wonderful living soil whether it is on a town block, or acreage and are suitable for individuals, professional development, and as an introduction for commercial purposes.

The ‘It’s the Soil that Counts’ series comprises two workshops – the first provides foundational skills and knowledge of soil food webs and using brightfield microscopes. This, the second will build on the knowledge and skills from the first to monitor and manage soil biological health. The topics to be covered are outlined below.

Master Class (Sunday 9am to 4pm)

Review and extend knowledge of soil food webs

Review and extend knowledge of micro-organisms

Micro-organisms and plant succession

Micro-organisms in the carbon and nitrogen cycles

By the end of the Master Class you will have extended your knowledge of how the soil food web works, practised organism identification, learnt how to assess the qualitative health of soil and be able to put in place remediation strategies based on what has been learnt.

In addition to being named as a finalist in the Science Communicator of the Year in Peel, and Peel ESTEAM (entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) Champion, EarthWhile Australia has done podcasts with Deryn Thorpe of All the Dirt, and Sabrina Hahn’s Dirty Deeds. They have been guests on the Roots and Shoots ABC radio show and Curtin FM’s gardening show. "We feel privileged to have our work acknowledged by a range of academics, sustainability ‘experts’, ecologists and the people who have participated in our presentations and workshops and look forward to sharing our knowledge and skills on the topic of soil food webs with you."
