We spend billions of pounds on the exploration of space but still cannot identify everything that is in our soils. Chemists have spent centuries prying into the chemical components of soil, but there are numerous molecules within it that they have no idea of what they are.

The things that live in soil are essential to its health and therefore essential to human life, they can also be extremely weird and wonderful and are often mistaken for pests. In many instances they look like Aliens.

Explore this wonderful world and learn about its characters and how to cultivate them.
