Our soils are our future, this is a website about restoring depleted soils to full agricultural and ecological function. This restoration requires major management changes, but at soilbiology.tech we believe that bodacious compost is an important jump-start to creating living soil. The microbes that inhabit such compost are pretty cool to raise and look at.
