Today is World Soil Day, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has dedicated this year’s celebration to soil biodiversity.

The slogan for this year: “Keep soil alive, protect soil biodiversity.”

Closer to home, the Canadian Society of Soil Science’s goals for today’s celebrations are to draw attention to the importance of soil as a natural resource in Canada — a fact that farmers are well aware of — as well as start conversations with others in the field, and share how to maintain soil biodiversity.

Here at RealAgriculture, we’re proud of our cross-country coverage that highlights farmers and agronomists working towards maintaining soil biodiversity. Please enjoy a handful of our soil-themed content curated from Soil School series, LIVE!s, and soil-related posts, and just know that we have much more soil content in our archives ready for viewing!
