World Soil Day
« on: December 05, 2020, 04:41:45 pm »

Today is World Soil Day.

If you like eating food, drinking clean water, and breathing oxygen then you have soil to thank.

This mix of minerals, animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and protists supports pretty much everything that lives on land.

It’s so ubiquitous that most people pay no attention to it. It is wonderful, fascinating, fragile, and definitely needs looking after.

Zander designed this poster and I believe it is available for anyone who wants to use it and help spread the word about something we all take for granted.

Watched a fab film about it on Kendal Film Festival called Kiss The Ground, more info here.

A fascinating, important and little talked about subject - we cavers all know the smell of the earth :)
