Discovery NotesA solid soil sample was collected from the base of a flowered bush in the wooded area by south field. Soil was dark and moist with tiny roots and wood pieces. On a warm morning the top 3-inch layer of soil and other natural matter was dug through with a plastic spoon and the underlying layer of soil was scooped into the plastic bag and sealed.

Naming NotesMegiddo is the Hebrew word for Armageddon, the site of the final end of times battle as written in the book of Revelation. Phage therapy reminds me of the idea of destruction as a means of restoration and redemption.
