Oregon farmer Jen Aron knows a secret – if you feed soil microbes, they’ll help your plants grow.

“The microbes are at the forefront of everything we do here,” said Jen. “It’s not about what we put on the soil, it’s about how we care for the soil.”

Watch this short Grow and Tell video to learn how Jen takes care of her microbes, and how they take care of her plants.

Grow and Tell is a new farmers.gov feature with farmers sharing their experiences using USDA programs and offering first-person advice.
