Within the soil is an infinitely rich symphony of life. If we properly take care of the life within the soil—if we support the right balance of bacteria and other microorganisms—we can grow abundant crops that are resistant to drought, diseases, and pests and require significantly less water. And all without toxic chemical fertilizers or other additives.

This is the powerful message of Dr. Elaine Ingham, one of the world's leading soil microbiologists and an adjunct professor at Maharishi University of Management in the USA. Dr. Ingham has a PhD in microbiology from Colorado State University, and she is chief scientist at Rodale Institute, a nonprofit dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach.

Every spring, Dr. Ingham comes to the MUM campus in Fairfield, Iowa, to teach a class on living soil in the Sustainable Living department. With her guidance the department created a degree track in applied soil ecology, a specialization students can pursue within a Sustainable Living degree.

''I really like the students here,'' Dr. Ingham said. ''I really enjoy the fact that they seem to have a much clearer idea of why they are doing things.'' She also comments that they are ''a lot more interactive, more questioning and interested. I think it's because of Consciousness-Based education.''
