'Living Soil' As a Worldview
Trees exchange nutrients and trace minerals with microbes in the soil. These tiny microbial beings ( fungi, bacteria, protozoa) in the topsoil are fed by the trees sugars, and in turn, help the tree digest proteins and minerals.
This symbiotic view of “living soil” brings us to a new way of looking at health. The opposite of health is disease. “Disease” is merely two words put together “dis – ease.” A community of organisms is sick when it has dis – ease.
Understanding nature as inter-dependant organisms such as “Gut Flora” in the human stomach , helps us to understand how important microbes are (in this case for digesing food) Trees also depend on root fungi and bacteria in “living soil” to break down their food into absorbable nutrients. When root systems are disturbed (pesticides or herbicides, or digging), the microbes suffer and Disease in the system starts to develop
Relationships of interdependence exist in human society the same way Interfering with free and transparent market systems brings about symptoms of dis-ease like civil unrest and poverty. Wholistic systems approaches are hopeful ways of viewing the world as a self sustaining, interdependent system.

About Andrew Bachman
Connecticut is my Home My parents moved to West Hartford when their jobs transferred in the late eighties. I enrolled in Bugbee elementary, King Phillip Middle and then Hall High School, graduating in 2002. As a boy, I spent 7 years in the Boy Scouts, attending campouts, teaching workshops, leading other boys,and eventually attaining the rank of Eagle Scout. I also enjoyed the competition, comradery and discipline of team activities and endurance sports, like soccer and running. I was fortunate to have many intellectual friends and coaches in all these activities which is how I developed the critical thinking skills that now help shape the vision of the company.
What’s in a Name Most days after school, I would bring my dog down by trout brook park, running with the dog off-leash along the forest paths. The little forested slices of West Hartford were my playground for observing nature and daydreaming. My enjoyment of the town’s green spaces and green corridors is the reason why I named my business “Trout Brook Landscaping”
