​​There are more than a billion microbes in a teaspoon of soil – that is why scientists regard soil as a living organism. At this evening's Science Cafe Stellenbosch at Woordfees 2022, Dave Pepler talks to Prof Karin Jacobs from SU’s Department of Microbiology about how the soil microbiome can be revived in the spirit of regenerative agriculture.  

Stellenbosch Science Café is an initiative of SU’s Faculty of Science to encourage conversations about scientific issues in a language that everyone can understand. Follow us on Facebook or send an e-mail to to join our mailing list.
