Hidden Nature: How Microorganisms Restore the Land
Join Ventura Land Trust and Center for Regenerative Agriculture Director Dr. David White on meeting platform Zoom for Hidden Nature: How Microorganisms Restore the Land.
Dr. White will use microscopy and compost to show how microorganisms transform dead plant matter into healthy soil, and draw parallels between the garden and large-scale land restoration.
David White has a B.Sc. in Biological Sciences and a Ph.D. in Cell Biology from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He has worked with numerous environmental groups in Ventura County over thirty years including the Keep the Sespe Wild Committee, Food for Thought Ojai and the Ojai Valley Green Coalition.
In addition to being the co-founder and Executive Director of the Center for Regenerative Agriculture David is also the Director of the Ventura Land Trust’s Once upon a Watershed education program, active at eleven schools in the Ventura River Watershed. One of his favorite things to do is to plant trees with kids.
