SC hosting ‘Down to Earth’ lecture

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery Science Lecture Series will present “Down to Earth — Exploring the link between healthy soil and healthy humans through gardening.”

Ashley Roberts, biologist and gardener, will talk about how the relationship between healthy soil and healthy plants extends far beyond monitoring soil nutrients and encouraging high crop yields.

The quality of the soil also directly impacts the nutrient content of the plants grown in it. Healthy soil yields well-nourished plants which become nutrient dense foods that, when consumed, foster well-nourished humans. Conversely, poor quality soil generates deficient plants which cannot adequately support a healthy human body.

Gardening is an engaging way to explore the intricate relationship between your soil’s health and your own
The lecture will be Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Sheridan College Mohns Center Science Museum.
This is free and open to the public.
