“There are more microbes in a teaspoon of soil than all of the people on earth.” Those microbes are what holds the soil together and make food nutritious. The chain of life that we are responsible for has its basis in the health of the soil.
This show is created by six related artists: Bonnie Mettler; first born Ky Mettler and youngest daughter Brett Mettler; sister Gail McIntosh and her daughter Maisie Osteen; and sister-in-law Nancy Bruce.
