October 23rd, 2017 by Vashon Center for the Arts

The last in the 2016-17 Vashon Center for the Arts Science Lecture Series – a talk by David Montgomery and Anne Bikle.

A riveting exploration of how microbes are transforming the way we see nature and ourselves―and could revolutionize agriculture and medicine.

Prepare to set aside what you think you know about yourself and microbes. Good health―for people and for plants―depends on Earth’s smallest creatures. The Hidden Half of Nature tells the story of our tangled relationship with microbes and their potential to revolutionize agriculture and medicine, from garden to gut.
