About Mary Lucero
In 2012, I believed my colleagues and I had solved the technical challenges of growing more food, more sustainably, while combating climate change. Together, we proposed using microbial interactions to ignite a global evergreen revolution*. At the time, I had concluded that microbes already living in the environment can accomplish almost everything we use chemicals in agriculture, food production, and healthcare to achieve.
As I looked at the many ways that microbes work to clean the environment, build healthy soils, promote sustainable agriculture, and support human health, I came to believe restoring microbial biodiversity is critical, not only for agricultural sustainability, but for our health, our economy, and our survival as a species. I opened End-O-Fite Enterprises LLC to provide information and resources that help growers and people with chronic health concerns increase the microbial biodiversity critical for restoring productivity.
Changes that restore functional microbial communities we call microbiomes are not technically challenging. Whether we are talking about soil health or your health, I can very quickly teach the basic nutritional and cultural or lifestyle principles that allow healthy microbiomes to thrive. However, implementing these principles may require significant changes in the way we grow and prepare our food, the way we care for our families, and even the way we manage our money. As a member of The Extension Team, I can offer clients access to a growing network of experts that can straighten out the complicated twists and turns that arise as you implement change.
