The 68th UN General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils.
One of the objectives of this initiative is to educate the public about the importance of soil, and we have a number of opportunities to do just that!
Please join us at one of the upcoming community events to learn about healthy soil for your lawn, garden, family, and health.
Soil is where food begins, is teaming with life, and provides the foundation for our playgrounds, forests, meadows, and marshes.
“The promotion of sustainable soil and land management is central to ensuring a productive food system, improved rural livelihoods, and a healthy environment.”
