World Soil Day 2020: Every clod has a silver lining

It's been said that there is more life in a teaspoon of soil, then there are humans on this earth. Sadly though, we look and treat soil like... dirt. In conjunction with World Soil Day on the 5th of December, we want to share why healthy soil is essential for human survival.

You can check out fao.org/world-soil-day, which is a thematic website full of information, initiatives and materials that will give you a solid foundation on all things soil-related.
