About Jennifer Keenan Taylor

The world is changing. While centralizing our food production over the last hundred years in California, Colorado, and the Midwest has provided many benefits, it simultaneously created a system that relies heavily on energy resources (for production/shipping/bringing to market) and geographically concentrated unfavorable environmental impacts. Both out of choice and out of necessity, the era of centralized food production is ending.

Nature has a way of cycling nutrients into plant available forms. In the prairies, wetlands, forests, and alpine zones, no one is plowing and fertilizing these wild areas and yet vegetation thrives. It happens with the presence of microorganisms and an entire soil food web.

Our current practices of plowing, fertilizing, and applying herbicides absolutely decimates the soil food web.

My goal and purpose is to reintroduce the soil food web where ever food for humans or animals is grown. It is applicable to potted plants on balconies in the city or acres of farmland in the country. A plant's drought tolerance and pest resistance skyrockets with this approach. Food nutrition rises dramatically. The growth and consumption of smaller elements in the soil food web by larger critters in the soil food web cause the release of nutrients right at the plant roots where they are needed.

I provide products and services to farmers, home gardeners, and permaculture professionals enabling them to reestablish the soil food web in their communities.
