Today is world soil day. Today we celebrate and cherish this natural resource.
Being in the agricultural sector, there is nothing more important than soil (and water of course). Soil is the backbone of production. It gives life. It gives character to wines.
World Soil Day is about awareness.
“World Soil day celebrates the importance of soil as a critical component of the natural system and as a vital contributor to the human commonwealth through its contribution to food, water and energy security and as a mitigator of biodiversity loss and climate change.
Many events focussed on increasing the public awareness of soil and its contribution to humanity and the environment. it is held on December 5th because it corresponds with the official birthday of H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej ,The King of Thailand, who has officially sanctioned the event.” – World Soil Day Facebook Page
Let us celebrate this day, and think about the importance of soil, the preservation and protection of soil, and the life that springs forth from it.
