World Soil Day: Keep Soil Alive, Protect Soil Biodiversity

World Soil DayJoin us in celebrating World Soil Day, December 5. Healthy soil is essential for sustaining healthy ecosystems and plays a key role in providing nutrients for plants and storing carbon.

Soil is much more than dirt, it is filled with life that helps keep soil healthy and fertile. The diverse community of living organisms in soil often feed on organic matter, a major component of soil. Compost is a rich soil amendment that reintroduces organic matter back into the soil. Compost helps build healthy soils and supports soil biodiversity. It's important that we protect our soils and keep them alive for generations to come.
