Soil is Important

Posted by romeethredge on January 30, 2015

NRCS representative, Anita Tabb, here in Donalsonville, reminded me that 2015 is the “International Year of Soils”.

The soil that God created is a miraculous thing. It’s what plants grow in.  Someone the other day said, “Most food comes from plants”,  yes, but really all food comes from plants or animals and organisms that eat plants. Those plants mostly grow in soil.

My ABAC College professor, Mr. Sibbett, said “Dirt is what’s under your fingernails, soil is where plants grow.” I still lovingly call it dirt sometimes.

Here’s a good general 2 minute video about soil.
