World Soil Day
In 2002, the International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS), in 2002, made a resolution proposing Dec. 5 as World Soil Day. This day is designated to celebrate the importance of soil and its vital contributions to human health and safety.
Under the framework of the Global Soil Partnership, The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is celebrating World Soil Day 2012 in Rome on Dec. 5.
This is a well-timed opportunity for USDA-NRCS to reinforce our soil health messages, while helping to promote World Soil Day" You might hear or see these slogans today: You've got to watch this 5 min video on Soil! "Let's Talk About Soil"
There are more organisms in a teaspoon of soil than there are people on earth! http://ow.ly/fGewe #worldsoilday#soilhealth
No matter where your water comes from, it's been filtered by the soil!
We owe our existence to those few inches of living and life-giving top soil. Hat's off to World Soil Day!
