In this edition of Bay Area Bountiful, we dig below Earth’s surface to get the dirt on what it takes to make healthy soils. We learn about the impacts of soil salinity, why composting and carbon sequestering are vital, how soils can retain more water and recharge subterranean aquifers, and what the soil food web is and how plants communicate with each other through underground root networks.
