You might not think much about the soil under your feet. It's just dirt, right? Actually, soil is an essential foundation for all life on earth! Soil affects the food we eat, the nutrients our natural ecosystems need, the air we breathe, and the climate that makes our planet habitable. Crazy connections, right?
Here's the problem: Earth's healthy soil is rapidly disappearing. This is impacting our food supply, ecosystems, and air. It is also speeding up changes to our climate.
And here's the good news! We can all work together to restore soil's health, and in doing so, help slow changes to our climate. As a Soil Hero, you become a part of the solution.
