Credits: 4

This workshop is divided in to two parts. Part one provides delegates with a sound introduction to the principles of microbiological management and a basic understanding of the vital role that the activities of micoorganisms have in unlocking and realising our soil’s full potential. Part two addresses the identification of the main components of a simple light microscope, providing take-away tips to help individuals to select a suitable model for themself. In the latter stages of this section of the workshop, we will concentrate on the practical application of this knowledge through a demonstration and training in correct microscope operation and how to use the device to sucessfully identify the key groups of microorganisms; using this knowledge to carry out effective, qualitative work.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Empower growers and greenkeepers to take control of their soil
  • Provide a foundation to understanding the importance of soil life
  • Be able to identify the key microorganisms in soils and solutions
  • Become familiar with the care and operation of a basic light microscope
  • Investigate the microbial components of compost teas
  • Carry out productive, qualitative assessments
