Growing a Revolution: Bringing our Soil Back to Life (15 CPEU / CEU)
Growing a Revolution


Understanding the critical importance of soil health on human health and nutrition is one of the hottest topics in dietetics today. Prepare to be astounded at the myriad ways the soil microbiome contributes to our survival and how farming practices impact it. Author David Montgomery, PhD, weaves a fascinating set of stories--amassed from around the globe--and combines them with his expertise as a geologist and soil researcher to give you the research-based background in a compelling and readable format.

  • An in-depth look at the history and science of agricultural practices, and their impact on the health of the soil, and by extension, the health of the communities it feeds
  • The fascinating and intricate connection between the health of the soil--the microbial community that lives there--and the nutrient density of the crops that grow there.
  • Case studies of farmers using innovative methods to conserve carbon, enhance soil microbial diversity, and grow more nutritious and abundant crops using fewer natural resources

"This course was profoundly inspiring. I live in a rural community surrounded by farm land and had many questions and concerns about what is happening right here around me. This self study helped me to understand more about the science, the challenges and the values of conservation and conventional agriculture practices. I am now goal setting on what I can do in the future to help educate both professionally and on a social basis about soil health and its potential to support the nutrition of the family and ultimately the planet."
- Tracy Assenheimer, RD, Bucyrus, OH
