Kassie Brown, Renaissance Soil: The Universe Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Soil Ecosystems

Soil is one of the last truly uncharted territories. It’s also the key to solving many of the environmental problems we face today. Healthy soils will clean and hold water, remediate pollution, sequester carbon, and grow resilient plants. Healthy soil is built by countless microbes working 24/7 – and they need our help!

This presentation is for anyone interested in learning more about the complex ecosystem beneath our feet and how to recognize inert, lifeless dirt, and transform it into living soil.

Renaissance Soil is a St. Paul based non-profit dedicated to regenerating soil through education, outreach, and action opportunities.

Kassie Brown is the founder and educator of Renaissance Soil . A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, Kassie is passionate about reconnecting people, food, and nature. After studying the soil food web with leading soil microbiologist Dr. Elaine Ingham, Kassie decided to make the amazing complexity of life below ground her primary focus.
