At Bolster’s Adirondack Farm we focus on studying the microbial life that lives deep within the soil microbiome. Our health is dependent on the collaboration of many different microbes including but not limited to bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and algae. Our interactions, whether it benefits or degrades it, determines the health of our environment, our microbial counterparts, and inevitably ourselves. Displaced pollution, such as microplastics, is just one example that has led to large-scale die off and to the extinction of different microbial species and even whole communities. When these die-offs occur, the world’s microbiome is thrown more out of balance causing a fluctuation in our food supply and fresh water availability.
