    Getting the Real Dirt on Soil Ecosystems

    Grow Native Massachusetts presents John Swallow, Ph.D., Director of Environmental Sciences at Pine & Swallow Environmental. If healthy, the earth beneath our feet is full of robust biological activity— with microbes, fungi, nematodes, and other life. Tonight, we explore the interconnection between soil ecosystems and the physical and chemical characteristics of soil. It requires a delicate balance. After this talk, you will have newfound awe for what you might have thought was just “dirt.” Dr. Swallow is an internationally recognized pioneer in horticultural soil management and soil preparation for ecological restoration. His firm created the six unique soil types necessary for the creation of Lusitania Meadow at Fresh Pond Reservation.
