Protecting soil…

Soil, it comes to pass is the key component of a healthy biosphere; it can easily store up to 5 times as much carbon as the plants and animals on top of it and it is home to a great many beneficial organisms which facilitate the nutrient cycle necessary for plant growth. A better understanding of soil is the key to a successful relationship with Gaia. Soil is not there just to feed plants, it helps regulate and moderate the atmosphere and climate, stores nutrients and water and more importantly houses the microbes and fungi essential for maintaining life. Soil is what connects it all together. (Source)
