Soil. Could there be anything more fundamental to life on Earth? With healthy soil, bursting with microbes, fungi, grubs, worms and bugs, we have the foundation for lush ecosystems, pure water, and food for all. But every day Earth’s soil is stripped, starved, eroded, doused with chemicals, wind-blown and washed away, carted off, paved over, mined under. Around the world, living soil is being transformed to dead dirt, and lost – 10 to 40 times faster than it can be naturally replenished. It’s time to protect and restore the ground under our feet! This is why the U.N. has declared 2015 the International Year of the Soil. And this is why Groundswell is thrilled to host the world-renowned biologist and soil expert, Dr. Elaine Ingham, in her only visit to Canada this year!
