Sierra Soil Biology Association

Welcome to the Sierra Soil Biology Association

About Us


SSBA's Mission


The Sierra Soil Biology Association promotes knowledge and development of the soil food web – that complete spectrum of microscopic life that moves nutrients through soil as nature intended.


Why develop a healthy food web in your soil?

  • Maximize plant quality and production, with no synthetic inputs.
  • Eradicate diseases and pests – without  pesticides, of any kind.
  • Allow plants to achieve their potential for health and vitality.
  • Help reverse the effects of  global climate change.


The Way Forward


Thanks to a growing number of biologists – foremost among them the esteemed Dr. Elaine Ingham – the big picture is clear: healthy soil requires a particular range and diversity of microbial life. By adopting techniques created from this knowledge, farmers, ranchers and gardeners are leading the way to a healthy future.
