In this second video of the series, we take a look at the science of healthy soil. Rather than discussing, chemistry we discuss soil as it relates to biology and natural processes.

We look at soil microorganisms (0:35), plants (1:12) plant roots (1:26), surface residue (3:08), soil organic matter (3:33) and soil structure (4:47).
