Without Fungi agricultural soils would struggle to function. These organisms spread out below the surface, connecting with plants and other soil organisms, quietly being amazing!
Healthy biological soils are crucial to plant health, including our food crops.

In this workshop Dr Alison Pouliot will give you an overview of the vital significance of fungi in soils & the important role they play in providing soil structure, retaining water, nutrient availability & ecosystem resilience.
The day includes an interactive seminar & paddock walk.
