About this course

There are intricate connections between water, climate, and ecosystem well-being. Embark on a journey to Cottonwood Ranch in the Jarbidge Mountains as Nicole uncovers the hidden secrets of healthy soil and its far-reaching consequences. We can degrade or restore soil systems through our land management. When we look at healthy and degraded soils, we can begin to see what factors are creating these conditions and the global implications for poor soil management. 

This course will enable you to become a soil steward and take action to restore the soil whether on a small or large scale. Read the signs of healthy and unhealthy soil by deciphering the ecosystem function through water cycles, scent, and soil colour and observing the plants growing above ground. Delve into the pivotal role of fungi, discovering more about the microbiological wonders that shield plant roots and the profound relationship between soil health, nutrient-rich food, and the well-being of our planet.
