Helen presents a comprehensive overview of the soil food web and its significance in maintaining a thriving garden.

Through sharing her personal experiences of gardening in both Montana and California, Helen highlights the benefits of having a living mulch and an active root system in the soil throughout the year. These principles, when followed correctly, can establish a healthy soil food web that provides a habitat for a variety of species and ensures a stable ecosystem for plants to thrive.
