A three-day soil workshop led by Dr. Elaine Ingham will be hosted by Greg and Jan Judy on their farm, June 5-7. The Judy farm is located in Rucker, Missouri, which is about 24 miles from Columbia, Missouri. Here is the text from their website:

"It will be a 3-day workshop held at Judy farms. The first 2 days, Elaine will cover all the steps in building healthy soil life on our farms. By focusing on introducing aerobic microbes and eliminating anaerobic microbes, we can dramatically improve our soils. The third day, Elaine will show attendees the proper method for building a compost pile and preparing compost tea.

"Dr. Elaine Ingham is a world-renowned soil microbiologist who continues to study the microbial life of the soil, which in large part explains why organic “works.” Elaine founded Soil Foodweb, Inc. in 1996, helping farmers all over the world to grow more resilient crops by understanding and improving their soil life."

Bumping this thread to find out if there are any updates from Greg or Elaine or any attendees from this workshop.

Greg said in his PV1 talk that they were selecting some of the worst soil he had to begin improving with Dr. Ingham's method.

It sounded also like Greg was looking to get deeper than 8 or 9 inches into the soil for improved aeration and all the benefits that follow there.
