Know the Ecosystem in Your Soil

Healthy soil supports a host of microrganisms that assist in breaking down nutrients for plants growing in your garden or lawn. By testing your soil for microbial life, you can gain insight into the health of your microorganism communities, and track progress towards making your growing spaces thrive.
