We walk on it, dig into it, and build with it. We depend on it to grow food and clothing, filter water, and support natural ecosystems. Soil is essential to life. Join the American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America in celebrating soil! World Soil Day is celebrated every year on Dec. 5. The day focuses attention on the importance of protecting soil as one of our valuable, natural resources.
You can make a difference, too! Check out the top 5 ways we can support soil.
