Most of us know that fruits and vegetables come from living plants, but we don't often think about the soil in which they are grown. Healthy soil hosts a living factory that's full of bacteria, invertebrates, insects, and animals--which, under the right conditions, cause plants to thrive. Maysie's Farm shows how organic farming practices such as composting can nurture healthy soil, which in turn grows healthy, delicious food for people to enjoy.
