Hi ,
Greetings to all lovers of the microkosmos, the invisible world just beneath our feet.
Many thanks to Julian, Josephine and Rolf for the beautiful and inspiring weekend at this hidden magic place. Also many thanks to all the interesting people that shared their knowledge and passion. As the head of the registered association „Mikrobiologische Vereinigung München“ i‘m very happy that the magic world of the small things and especially the Soil related topics got so much attention. The primary founder of the association Mr. Raoul H.France wrote 1907 :
„ …let us unite, naturalists, teacher,physicians,students and all who feel passion for the nature and vivid education . Let‘s found an association to propagate the use of microscopes and the knowledge about the natures microscopic details…“
So the first information i want to share with you is a link to the pages where you can find -among other interesting documents- the famous Book „Das Edaphon „ from (Edaphos=the ground, the soil)

See you soon,


Uuups, here is the link
And the first edition was from 1911
Good night,
P.S. pictures and videos from soil/humus will follow soon


Wow, thank you so much for sharing this great book!!
