Harry's grasp of the complexities of these topics were first unveiled in his classic book The Transition Document: Toward a Biologically Resilient Agriculture (4th edition (2010) which contains several chapters relevant to this workshop.

This workshop covers in 4 hours what it takes sometimes days to cover in other Soil Food Web oriented workshops. The material is essential to understanding how and why the dominant NPK paradigm and synthetic chemical practices work against a durable agricultural future. The microherd is our ally as we move away from inexpensive petroleum inputs. Cutting edge information is unique and guides informed organic and biodynamic practices. Soil tests showing the success of these techniques will be shared. Harry continues to promote what is still considered too controversial by those who embrace the conventional, even as that thinking is practiced in much of organic agriculture
