Sure, it just seems like dirt. But that dirt that we walk on daily is vital to our survival. It helps grow the food that we eat and if the soil is not healthy, food becomes less nutritious and production decreases. NPR’s show 1A had a fascinating discussion with 3 professionals about soil health and what we can do to help enrich the soil. For example, tilling the soil before planting does not help! The discussion is not only for farmers, as they give recommendations to what you can do at home to help your soil.
Celebrate Soil Health Day (December 5) and tune in to see what is working and how you can help.
