Soil is alive and it is a life-giving resource! It is often viewed as the skin of the earth. Soil sustains life as it provides the foundation for growing plants that serve as food, feed, fiber, and fuel, all while filtering and purifying water resources.
With that said, December 5th, 2015, is World Soil Day. So in celebration, Water Rocks! is doin’ “Soil Health Style.” Discover the dynamic biology, cycling of nutrients, and filtering of pollutants going on right underneath our feet… get ready for soil science to go Gangnam Style!
Special thanks to the USDA-NRCS’s “Unlock the Secrets in the Soil” campaign and to PSY for the inspiration!
