Dr. Elaine Ingham is revered internationally as the preeminent teacher of soil micro-life and how human survival depends on it. The innovative authority on compost tea, Dr. Ingham has been educating the public on the life of soil for over 20 years. An engaging speaker, she has addressed audiences as diverse as the United Nations, Potato Grower Conferences, and countless universities.
The M.A. Center is the US headquarters for the international humanitarian and spiritual activities of an Indian saint, Mata Amritanandamayi (known as Amma). The 180-acre grounds serve as an educational hub for the Bay Area of sustainable design and practices. Drawn by the site's beauty, accessibility by public transportation, and the center's uncompromising dedication to proceeds funding humanitarian aid projects, hundreds of volunteers have joined to plant the orchards and reforest the hillsides.
