Arlington Conservation Council is hosting a virtual presentation by Randy Johnson (aka Organic Randy) on Wednesday, November 4 at 7PM. Get to know what's happening in the world beneath your feet from soil expert, Randy Johnson. We know a lot about what's above our feet but little about the fascinating world beneath our feet. Most folks don't realize that almost all that we see above ground, terrestrially, is made possible by soil biology. Soil health is vital to everything growing, whether it’s your flower bed, yard, garden, pasture or field. Randy will discuss foundation organisms such as bacteria, protozoa, nematodes, soil mites, fungi, earthworms, etc.
