Hidden Half of Nature Book.jpg


Dr. David Montgomery and Ann Bickle


Prepare to set aside what you think you know about yourself and microbes. The Hidden Half of Nature reveals why good health―for people and for plants―depends on Earth’s smallest creatures. Restoring life to their barren yard and recovering from a health crisis, David R. Montgomery and Anne Biklé discover astounding parallels between the botanical world and our own bodies.
From garden to gut, they show why cultivating beneficial microbiomes holds the key to transforming agriculture and medicine.
Books will be available for sale and signing at the seminar.
