As organisms, we’re not in it alone. Our personal community of
bacteria, viruses, archaea, and fungi living in our guts and in the additional protazoa and amoeba in the soil can be our allies with the right support. These allies can also help support recovering mental and planetary health. Join us for a panel discussion with a gut health microbiome coach and soil-microbiome nerds as we talk through the overlaps of how our health, our soil health,and climate’s health are connected through the myriad #weecritters in our guts and in every teaspoon of soil. 


Lindsey Parsons, EdD – Certified Health Coach, High Desert Health
Cass Posey – Owner, Cognitive Function
Matt Powers – Founder, The Permaculture Student
