We go full-nerd this week on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast, with Jeff Lowenfels and his new book about endophytic bacteria. We talk about what they are and why we want to steward them in our soil.
If you’ve read any of Jeff Lowenfel’s books in the Teaming with series, you’ll want to add Teaming with Bacteria to your collection. Jeff shares a window into this new scientific research that adds to our knowledge of the Soil Food Web.
