Provision invites you to come learn the essentials of 

the 

Soil Food Web


This course is facilitated by guest lecturer Marc Siepman from The Netherlands who is dedicating his life energy to inspire humans to slow down long enough to delve into the ground of our being.  Come learn how to both save and savour the soil right under our feet as a prescription for individual and collective survival!

During this course you will meet several important inhabitants of a healthy soil: bacteria, fungi, protists, nematodes, earthworms, and more. What’s their purpose? How do they relate to each other? And more importantly: how can we help them so they can do their important work?

Although soil life is infinitely complex, taking care of it is not. We must learn to trust the complexities and team up with all life.
