Smart Gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life.   So is the well-found media bed in an aquaponics system. All the information pertaining to soil also applies to the humble media bed.

Every Aquaponics practitioner needs to become a master composter to ensure all the nutrients needed for healthy human life are present in our food. This requires that our soil or media beds are also teeming with life.

Healthy soil is teeming with life; not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy
plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of artificial, often toxic, substances. But there is an alternative to this vicious cycle. We can garden in a way that strengthens the soil food-web, the complex world of soil-dwelling organisms whose interactions create a nurturing environment for plants. "Teaming with Microbes" extols the benefits of cultivating the soil food-web.
