This episode: BC Ministry of Agriculture Organic Industry Specialist Emma Holmes in conversation with Miranda Hart, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at UBC Okanagan. A good deal of Miranda's work focuses on the biology of soil, and in this conversation we'll learn about the tricky business of studying soil microbes, the trickier business of trying to inoculate your soil with them, and why creating the right soil ecosystem might be a more effective way to increase the biological activity in your soil.

We also visit the conference trade show booth of Local Line, a Canadian e-commerce platform built for farmers and food suppliers.

This is a re-release from our 2021 BC Organic Conference podcast that initially broadcast in January 2021. We're busy producing a new podcast series that will be included as an option with your 2022 BC Organic Conference ticket.
