Service Description

Did you know that some plants and fungi actually share resources through a mycorrhizal relationship? While the plants can produce enough food to share with the fungi, the fungi can reach farther underground to mine minerals and collect water for the plants. It's a whole ecosystem underground. So, what are mycorrhizae and how can we encourage this relationship between our plants' roots and the beneficial fungal life in the soil? And, why should we? Presenter: Pat Lust PLEASE NOTE: In order to present, our speaker will need a small table for the projector as well as a screen or blank wall to project onto clearly. Also available via Zoom video conference.
