Presentation Topic: Keystones in Sustainable Systems: Partnering with Beneficial Microorganisms by Professor Dee Eggers UNCA

Description: Dee Eggers is an Associate Professor in UNC Asheville’s Environmental Studies Department.  She is profoundly interested in all things sustainability-related, from sustainable models of industry to ecosystem restoration.  In this talk, she will focus on beneficial soil microorganisms and their use in improving soil and plant health, food production, human health, and a few interesting sidebars – like how one treatment can cause hornets to abandon their nests and leave no toxic residue.  (True!)  She will also briefly address optimal ratios of bacteria and fungal communities at various stages of succession and how to use that information for food production and ecosystem restoration.

Come a little early for refreshments and socializing.
